    Hickory, Taylorsville, Statesville, Wilkesboro?

    I'm in western North Carolina - Alexander county. Hickory is 30 min. south, Statesville is 20 minutes east, and Wilkesboro is about 25 min. north.

    An acquaintance and I are putting out the call for b&w film photographers who would like to meet - perhaps quarterly. We'd like to do darkroom workshops from time to time.

    Photographers on any level are welcome.

    Anyone on board here from these parts??

    I have a good friend from college who is from Statesville. I used to read his copy of the Statesville _Record and Landmark_ every week to catch up on all the local beauty pageants. They seemed to have one on the front page of every issue. I visited him and his family down there once years ago, and I remember having good barbecue in Dudley Shoals.

    I've just moved to Greensboro. I moved from Boston, and I'm from Connecticut, but I'm here to stay now. It's about 90 minutes to get to Hickory for me. Things are busy for me, but keep me posted, I'd certainly be interested.

    Hey Janet, I'd definitely like to join up with you all. I travel home to NC through Statesville at least once every couple of months. We talked about meeting up next time I'm there(on the other board), but I'd definitely be interested in darkroom workshops too. Keep me posted.

    David, We're right between Statesville and Dudley Shoals. I'll bet you went to Simm's Country Bar-B-Q - right? And did you clog???

    Paul, if we ended up meeting in Statesville it would be about half an hour closer for you. We're looking for a darkroom large enough for a handful of people. We'll see where that may be and I'll keep you posted.

    Val. Hi there! Yep, stay tuned.

    I'm encouraged to see some response here.

    Janet

    Monty, What is Pt/pd? I have no idea, but I'll bet I'm interested. Asheville is a 2 hour drive from where I am, but maybe we could do a one-day meet sometime? Thanks for replying.

    That was it--Simm's. Not knowing how to clog, we enjoyed the music and the barbecue and watching other people clog.

    >>>Pt/pd="platinum/palladium"<<<

    Is that something you can do with any format? Interested? I'd say, yes!

    David, when we first moved here from Florida we used to take guests there as often as we could. It was a fun place! We didn't know how to clog either, but it didn't stop us. I haven't been for a long time. Makes me want to go again.

    Platinum/palladium is a contact process, so it needs a large negative, but you could make an enlarged negative from a smaller negative in the darkroom, if you don't have a large camera.
