    Well after a year of not having a darkroom I just spent 3 hours printing 2 prints that I really like. Its been great. I haven't been this jazzed in a while.

    I was without a darkroom as I was building my dream darkroom. Took much longer than I thought.

    Tonight, as it is snowing outside, I went into the darkroom with J-Mood by Winton Marsalis, a glass (or two) of red wine, and about 5 rolls of 220 film that has been accumulating.

    It was so nice to "make" a photo in the traditional fashion. I just love it.

    Its good to be back. Thanks to all APUGers who helped me with my questions over the past few months.

    It looks like a nice, uncluttered working area. I hope you make the prints you want.

    Ahhh... read wine. :smile: After the third glass, it often ends up as a wonderful stainer. The white: acid stop bath.<p>
    Congrats on getting back to the dark side!

    Ah... the feeling, eh Jeffery? Sounds like a little bit of heaven.

    My darkroom shares the location with my radios. Its to the left of the enlarger. I will post a picture of it. Wasn't aware we had a lot of ham/Amateur Radio photographers on this board.

    My darkroom/shack is in the basement of my house. I am located in FN30cx which is Scarsdale, NY. (for those wondering what FN30cx is, its a madenhead grid location on the world that is a few miles by a few miles).

    Thanks LW and BWGirl!
