    If you don't already have them for your lens(es) you will need lens boards. You didn't mention if you are getting a monorail/field camera/press camera but depending on what you plan on shooting and if you want to do any location shooting you will need to figure out your carrying bag strategy (hard case, soft case, backpack, rolling toolbag, etc). You will also want lens wraps to protect your lenses mounted on lens boards for traveling (if traveling with multiple lenses). You can find good deals on lens boards and lens wraps at KEH.com. Some people have used soft sided bags made for fly fishing reels to transport lenses on lens boards.

    The BTZS brand focusing clothes available from the viewcamerastore.com are really nice because they have elastic that allows them to snuggly git over the rear standard and they work much better in wind than a traditional flat focusing cloth.

    Will take that under advisement, Jerevan. Thank you for the recommendation.

    Developing tank: Cibachrome or a Jobo 2840 tank. The Cibas are inexpensive and very economical (about 150 ml soup if I recall correctly).

    Update:

    I did bring the enlarger home. Lori did set up a darkroom. And I did get another copy of the book. Was actually reading it last night.

    Christopher,
    It is nice that you are posting here again. Working through grief is a life long process. This time of year was always my mother's favorite, and I always think of her even though she passed away 26 years ago. We carry around those little pieces of our loved ones in our hearts.

    I have settled, Umut. I got myself straightened around and last week I picked up my copy of Ansel Adams' autobiography. After a few chapters, I realized that it was more than overdue I get back into being a shutterbug. Glad I'm back and thank you.
