I'm back. I haven't been here for about five years. I drifted away when a second job stole my time and creative energy then failed to drift back when I quit the second job. Then I got involved with other things...and with every passing month and year, my disused darkroom mocked me. No more...the existential angst of not *making* anything got to be too much and yesterday I cleaned the darkroom. Tonight I will take inventory of usable chemistry, film and paper and assess what I need. I feel SO rusty. I will be re-reading every conversation here that documents the process and methods I was pursuing when I let it slip. Hi.
