Been here a coupla months without saying hello. I didn't mean to be rude! This is really a fantastic site, and thanks to everybody up front for helping me with my craft. So, I dabbled with this stuff in high school and college, put it away for about twenty years, now here I am. I shoot Contax rangefinder, old Rolleicord, old Hasselblad, EOS3, cheapy Polaroid, various P&S's, and a bunch of homemade 4X5 pinholes, and some other things laying around. I didn't have any of this stuff five years ago, then we moved into a house that already had a darkroom, and I said, hmm. Things really got weird when I discovered lith, and everything that comes with that. Being naturally suited to sleep deprivation, it was a perfect match. Now the entire basement looks like a bomb laboratory. The real thrill for me is taking papers and chemicals that folks are throwing in the garbage and turning them into images. At this stage in life I can afford whatever I want, but all I want is other people's garbage! (Say, that paint can looks like a camera . . .) Someday soon I'm going to bribe the kid next door to show me how to make pictures appear on this t.v. thing with the typewriter hooked up to it, so maybe I can share a little. Just not there yet. Anyways, this is a great site, and I'm glad to have found it. P.S. Anybody comes near Bellingham, I would love to meet and show ya around. I feel sometimes like I'm way up river, doin' my own thing.
