    Ya, I agree about the meeting, etc. Honestly it didn't seem like free parking was much of an issue, as there were quite a few spaces open (I parked 10yds from the front door).
    I really didn't have any problems shooting a 4x5. Then again, I shyed away from the 'main' areas, and I spent a lot of time in places where I never saw anyone else.
    As I said earlier, I used HP5, and my exposure times ranged from 8s-1/25th. The longest exposure I made was metered @ 16s; but this was in a dark corner of Death Row.
    I think the place would take on a whole other persona had it been later in the year when they would have to light the inside. Perhaps we should plan our next trip in Mid-Late November ?
    Did you guys make it to see the 'hole' ? The Sun/Moon chart that was created on the ceiling was astounding.

    I was unaware that it was accessible. I'd love to go down there to take a peek. I also wish they had a lens hole in the barrier screen that blocks your entrance to Cellblock 14 - the three-story cellblock with all the gratings between each floor, which is the only one you can't see down the entire length because it bends.

    All,
    I printed my negs from the meeting. I just made straight prints for the moment; but I will go back in tomorrow and try to make my improvements. Hopefully I'll get some scans to post.
    Anyone else have any negs or prints done ?

    I developed the one TMax negative I shot in 510 Pyro with minimal agitation. Part of it is a little soft because I couldn't see well enough to discern that I needed some tilt. So my 8x10 may become a 4x10. I'll have to print it to see how bothersome the out of focus area will be.

    Anyway, the negative gives me goose flesh so I'll wager that I can make a kickass print out of it. I batch up my negatives and only print when I have enough of them to justify using precious amidol. I'll develop another one tonight and hopefully print this weekend.

    Jim,
    Sounds great - I can't wait to see it ! Im going to try to get some scans today.

    Scott,
    Did they give you a tracking # ? At this rate, you can cancel your order, and order from PF before it would come in from B&S .

    Steve- I've thought about that, but the PF price on the pt/pd chems is significantly higher than the B&S price. I'll call them today to see what is up with it.

    This sounds as if it was a great outing. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all got there.

    Have you tried Artcraft? He's always been very quick for me.

    Well, I talked to the B&S folks and it went out last wednesday. It should be arriving today then. He said if it doesn't arrive today, call him back and he'll get a replacement set to me with faster shipping and a tracking # so they can verify progress.
