    For those that may not know, the collodion master Kerik Kouklis is undergoing surgery today..... Just thought a post on here to wish him positive thoughts and a speedy recovery and best wishes to his supportive family was in order.

    He's a great guy and I am glad I got to meet him last year at photostock.

    Our Father who art in Ether fume heaven
    Collodion be thy name
    Thy plate will come
    Thy will be done on glass or as it was on tin

    Give us this day our daily pour
    And forgive us our varnish failures
    As we forgive those who do not sun their silver.
    And lead us not into petzval temptation,
    But deliver us from evil KCN.

    For thine is the silver, the black fingers and the glory
    For ever and ever
    Amen

    Best wishes Kerik! I hope it goes well and that they successfully remove all the collodion that you have ingested over all these years to bring us so many fine images :wink: So that you can get back to pouring more as soon as possible...

    I join Andrew in the prayer with reservations for the "Petzval" trashing, just like I have reservations in the "I Believe" prayer when it comes to saying "I believe in the Catholic church".
    Kerik you will be up and pouring in no time. All the best to you and your family.

    All the best Kerik

    Stay away from those ether fumes until you're 100% (or at least 51%...)
