When Analog Meets "d"

I was looking at John Cyr's book on photographer's developing trays a couple of days ago. I decided to make a photograph of my own well used tray. Thirty years of images have swished through this tray. Thirty years of silver nicely deposited and acting as a historical reference to the many photographs I have printed in that time. I  photographed it digitally and was struck by how odd and out of place it looked on the computer screen while I "processed" the image in Lightroom.
