    All,

    I took a bit of a break. Well, long enough that over 400,000 new comments were awaiting me when I checked back in recently.

    I am dragging out my equipment--even a little I liberated from disposal in the past couple of years.

    I counted 4 35mm cameras at my beck and call: N90, N8008, FE and Canonet.

    3 MF cameras: Bronica C (purchased from an APUG member years back) and a Soviet folder, and a speed graphic.

    3 LF cameras: 4x5 rail camera, 4x5 press camera (Burke and James) and an 8x10 (Century #1).

    I have a refrigerator filled with film...including J%C classic 400 (to put a date on how long I've been out). I just got some new chemicals and hope to get started again soon.

    Hey Brad,

    I found a small bottle of HC110 that you gave me years back, right before I went underground. Looks OK still, so I'm getting ready to try it out.

    I seem to recall your Avatar is from a trip to the Galapagos. Am I correct?

    Hey Matt...wow, I forgot about the HC-110. I'm sure it is still fine. My son is still using off a bottle that is dated 2007.

    yeah, the avatar photo was taken by my wife on our first trip to ecuador. I don't remember what Island we're on in this photo...may have been Genovesa.
