Sorry to hear about the hurricane! Hope all is well with everyone, their families and their friends.

printed a few, but my toner is on backorder, so it will be awhile longer...

I couldn't believe it, went into the local Henrys for some KRST that showed up on inventory and on the shelf there was also some Berg Sepia! I got both but I didn't get Copper this time, still have some on the go (some Berg selenium too but I think it is pretty much done). Still not sure what if any toning is needed but I do like to tone, at least some selenium, for some extra zip.

Trying to make some new negatives for this round instead of recycling older ones. Besides, the Puget Sound (Seattle) region is currently experiencing one sunny day after another right now, so there's NO way after our previous 11-month winter that I'm missing these to do any darkroom work. It's been over a year since this much continuous normal weather. Probably years longer.

Spent four days wandering the state fair with the 4x5 Crown. I even had the 8x10 set up on the front lawn today just to reacquaint myself with the thing. Maybe an AA trip to Mt. St. Helens for a 3-frame panorama?

No rain, snow, sleet, wind, hail, ice, tornados, waterspouts, flooding, darkness, downed trees, power outages, locusts, or even plague. Is this the end of the world, or what??

Speaking of blind.

I broke out my 4x5 today, been way too long. The RB has been getting the most attention lately.

Well, I was in a hurry and I rushed to load my holders this morning. When I went to reload them this evening I found all the sheets had been loaded, :errm: notches left on top. :redface:

Working my way through new images shot this summer. Hopefully I will find something there.

Thanks, Birger.

I'm liking how dark my prints are now so perhaps just a weak selenium toning, or even none at all.

That's cool, there'll be at least one exchange in which I won't be late :D !!!

Is there a thread were people post photos of the prints they received from everyone?

Finally, I got around to (almost) setting up my darkroom in my bathroom and have done some printing already.
I'm debating whether I should send my print already or do another session, but at the least, I'm printing again!

Will send my print soon!

Thanks for the updates! Deciding whether or not I'm going to mount mine before I find out how much it is to ship them.

PM sent!

If anyone else has misplaced their address, please let me know.

I still need to matt my prints. Was hoping not to but I can never get fiber as flat as I'd like without dry matting it.
