Yeah, i've been almost everywhere and yet somehow manage to keep landing back here. It IS the water. It's just not chewy enough overseas. I'll see about coming to one of those meetups one of these days.Quote:

I'll probably be wandering around the city or elsewhere using up some of the many many rolls of expired-in-1991-Velvia-120 that seem to breed in my freezer, and/or some of the why-did-i-buy-30-rolls-of-135-Superia-800? Would be nice to shoot some 4x5s or something, maybe I'll go find an old shoebox and re-live Year 8 tech class...
Their website is pretty not great, but in person they are actually the best shop in Adelaide for this sort of thing, good to have a chat to as well. I think Adelaide Film and Darkroom User Group folks get a bit of discount there too, even more reason to come along and nab a beer with the gents once a month. I'll try to make it along to a meeting soon too, and organise a stickybeak at the new place for everybody when there's something exciting to actually look at.
Well I can't get approval for the Wet Plate, but threw some money into the kitty anyway. Best of luck, I will drop by on my next work trip to Adelaide to see this new lab
We do owe a pretty enormous THANK YOU to the APUGger who have contributed, we've met our pledge target and then a little more on top of that. Remember, anything you contribute helps, anything above our target goes into infrastructure on the lab. Maybe we can gyprock both sides of the walls instead of just the insides - maybe we can even get a little red light that turns on above the door when we have our safelights on. I just thought of that tonight but I should chat to the sparky about it on Monday.
We are making pretty good progress so far
The stud walls are all up and stage one of the electrical wiring is all in as of this morning, by Wednesday all the plumbing will be done and the elecricity finished off and we can spend a few evenings hanging gyprock on the inside, putting in vents, etc. The List of jobs left to do is a bit unpleasant to look at so I wont list them off, but by this time next week it will be a room (well, two) that is dark inside. That's a start. Still on track to open our doors in late May.
Stuff the plumbing and electrics - how's the plaque with my name on it coming along? :)
woo, that reminds me, I still haven't chucked my dosh down yet (waiting until next week, new Credit Card month then i don't have to pay until may). Buut i'll still do something even though you've got the target (I could do with a place to develop 4x5s if that travelwide camera gets its funding too)
