    Jim,

    Ain't it a bitch when you have to illicitly shack up with your photo-mistress at the motel? It seems no matter how careful you are, the wife always catches the smell of fixer or spots the toner stains on the shirt collar!

    Jimmultiplenumbers, that's actually a pretty good idea! Never occurred to me to rent a motel room. Much cheaper than renting darkroom space by the hour and I already have all the equipment.

    Actually, tho', what I'm thinking about doing is offering to teach basic and intermediate b&w skills through a local arts studio. If I can set up a small space in their property I won't even need to set up at home. I have a spare enlarger anyway. We'll see how that goes.

    Otherwise, I'll rearrange my bedroom which is already much larger than I need but which is poorly organized (king sized bed and I'm single). Set up a corner with a dark tent. Back in business.

    I want to thank everyone who has signed up to be in the blind print exchange. Sean is going to put up a page similar to the post card exchange, traveling protfolio and traveling negative project.

    I would like to put mailing addresses on that page and have it password protected. Everyone would be assigned a number in the order you asked to join and I would put the number pairings on the page and then you would get the other person's address there. If you are uncomfortable having your address on the page, let me know and we can just pair up numbers and leave it to individuals to get the addresses from each other. Only individuals that want to participate would have the password.

    right now I am collecting addresses and sending PMs to people with the pairings, but as we get up to and past 20 people it becomes to time consuming for me to do that.

    thanks for any other suggestion or input,

    Jim(multiplenumbers) Chinn

    At one point I was handcoating papers on the clothes dryer in a shared laundry room.. it was really the only space I had for it.

    When I used to shoot 5x7 and had to travel for a living I would haul everything into a motel and make contact prints.

    i apologize for not checking on the progress of the exchange. I am getting over a case of walking pneumonia, which morped from the flu, which morphed from a little cold. At the same time I have been trying to complete an 11x14 camera I am building for somone and begin laying out a 16x20 camera. But now I feel much better and am ready to get back to the the cameras and darkroom.

    Here are the participants that have been contacted and paired for this month: Nige, Silverpixels5, Poco, David Vickery, Ken S. Ole, Shesh and myself. If I forgot to send an address to someone please let me know. Several others have inquried but will join in later due to current time constraints and other commitments. Anyone who wants to join up for this month or November PM me and I will give you the deatails.

    Thanks,

    Jim
