I think the 'last minute' came and went, so are we looking at one group of eleven?

1 group, 11 participants, 10 prints to be made and sent in. You can send in 11 prints, I will just return a print back to you self that is all.

Let the fun begin.

Alrighty, fun indeed! I'm just wiping down my darkroom after testing some new papers, going to scrub up for bed while they're in the final wash then hang them up before I keel over.

I've got a few ideas of what I might share this time, going to be a tough choice!

4 weeks since the last post. How is everyone ticking along with their prints?

I will have mine done by the end of this long weekend. Did a run of 8x10 and also 30 odd postcard sized prints of the same image.

I have printed mine. I'm just letting them mature a bit.

Geeze-Louise, four weeks! I can't believe it's been that long since I've seen the inside of my darkroom (functioning as a darkroom at least, I saw it just the other day, as a workshop though...), I've been flat out, and crook, and getting big things dropped on me, and working with (urgh...) digital stuff. ...I may have to turf that bottle of diluted fixer I was last working with...

I did take a portrait of my little boy with the 4x5 this afternoon though, so I'll definitely be back in the darkroom soon to print that up. I've got the cutest photo of him (snapped on my phone) inspecting the camera, he loves trying to play with all the shiny knobs and dials (I keep the lens cap on 'till the last second), today I opened the viewing hood and he saw his favourite little red chair upside down in his Dad's crazy contraption! He grabbed both sides one the hood and stuck his face right in there to get a good look... ahhh, it's a Kodak moment...

Well, my prints matured so much that I decided that they needed to be re-printed.....which I have spent the last few hours doing. I should be able to get them in the post by the end of the week.

Now for some post cards....ah screw it, public Holiday Monday for that I think!

I WAS planning to drop my prints, and the Panalure over today, but they ain't ready yet! I'll be coming past your work on Wednesday (unless my job changes between now and then), would it be okay if I dropped them in to you there again?

Steve I'll be working this week down at our proving ground near Lang Lang. I will be in the office after lunch Friday if that works?

Argh, Disaster! Well, not disaster disaster, not like having your kids turn your prints into little boats to sail down the footpath gutter, but not far off. I went out to gather my completed & toned prints, and to my horror, found some weird stain across most of them (only 2 out of the 12 prints I made are unaffected). Crap. I can't work out where/how it happened, I did develop and fix them in batches of four, but kept them all moving & interleaving the whole process, and didn't notice any stain after they'd dried, or when they were re-soaked, bleached or toned... can't explain it, but very dissapointed :blink: I'll have to have a cuppa and think about where to go from here...
