    I've been printing color lately; can't say as I've found it therapeutic. Maddening maybe. :smile:

    In a good(?) way... it's always nice when a print comes out, isn't it?

    I've been there. Color has it's joys and challenges. I hope you have negs with color cross over. Now that's aggravating.

    Nothing beats time in the darkroom. I spent yesterday printing with a friend.

    I developed couple of sheets last night, too late to go in and print them but will definitely set up a session tonight. I need to push myslef otherwise the other half will find all kinds of things to do for me - thanks to the OP for the motivational post :smile:.

    That's what I did Friday night and Saturday morning. I feel very blessed to have my darkroom, and relish all opportunities I have to use it.

    I was able to get in some printing both Saturday and Sunday afternoons this past weekend, in my bathroom... er, darkroom I mean. I enjoy making exposures with a variety of cameras but I've come to realize that making photographic prints is the really fun part! Even in the case of printing sessions that end in some frustration, I feel that I learned something. And nothing else looks like a well-executed photograph.

    And breathing in the fumes from various chemicals for hours on end is quite therapeutic, really it is...
