Just discovered another fascinating alternative photo process; the example above was made by Akki. Anthotypes are made with flowers! Photos can be made from poppies, cabbages, and more. You can't get more environmentally friendly than that. Read about it here.
This was disovered by Sir John Herschel, who also was instrumental in formulating the cyanotype, of course....
Thanks to Akki14 from Flickr.
