    Greetings-

    Although I became a member about three weeks ago, I reckon it's time to introduce myself.

    I became interested in B/W photography way back in the late '70s when I returned to Seattle from a summer in Alaska. I never seemed to have any success with Tri-X for whatever reason but Panatomic-X and myself got along almost 100% (and I STILL miss that film!!!!!!!!!)... I ***really*** enjoyed experimenting with various developing agents to see how they acted; it was a lot of fun mixing from scratch. My interest waned in the mid-'80s but returned again around '88 or so when I did some volunteer photo work for DSHS where I was employed. I lost interest again when Kodak Safety Film 5060 was discontinued but started up again around 1997 and lost interest yet again around 2000.

    So here it is- 2011- and I now have my own paid-off house and virtually all of my previous darkroom stuff... here and there. And I'm getting a hankering for using the goods again, especially since I ain't getting any younger and I have lots of film in my freezer to expose.

    Hopefully my renewed interest in analog photography will remain constant this time!

    Another APUG welcome from the Monroe area.
    (East of Everett, north of Hwy 2, closer to Sultan than Monroe, on the way up to Stevens Pass.)

    BTW, has it stopped raining yet...?

    Welcome. I grew up in "Rat City", you should know where that is, but ended up in the South.
