A rose for you on the last day of January, which also happens to be my last day at NYBG.* It’s been a blast getting to know you, and I thank you for all your amazing comments, photos, blog posts, notes, and contributions.
When I started the NYBG Tumblr, I never dreamed it would someday be followed by nearly 200,000 people around the world! It is heartening to know that so many people love plants and understand their importance to us. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And please keep contributing! I am leaving you in the very capable hands of Matt (MN) and another contributor, soon to be named. I’ll see you around the Internet! All the best, ~AR (Ann Rafalko)
* Though it’s my last day, I still have a few posts in the queue, so you’ll see my initials around for a bit longer.

People at the MUCEM, Marseille, France, Summer 2013. Rolleiflex, negative’s scan
The Mucem is ont of the new museums of Marseille wich is the cultural capital in France for the Year 2013. The place sould be a very smart place visited by people who like art, but you can see some childrens swimming just near the museum, next to the visitors. I think that this picture represent Marseille : a beautiful City where the culture belong to every one. 
I’m not a professional photographer but I’m an historian of photography teaching now design. I’m leaving in Paris, my name is Anne Le Tallec.
I have learn a lot of old photographic technics like collodion, monotype, pinhole, etc… only silver technics because I really love the old way to make photos. Main of my photos are taken with a Rolleiflex SL 25 bought by my father whe he was 18een. But I use often other silver camera I found in second hand shop. 
I love to wait for my pictures, I love to be surprised and I really love the appearence, the texture of silver photos. I think that silver photo help you to think your photo before to press the button, and for me it is one of the most important thing in the medium conception.

My teaching was a bit more interactive than the traditional Turkish teachers’. I’d ask students to act out what vocabulary they were learning. Here was a day’s lesson on prepositions. Most of my orta okul (middle school) students were from villages where hearing and speaking another language was as foreign to them as seeing a television (which was not even available in Turkey in 1965).
