    Interesting, Terry was, and is to me, a radio broadcaster!

    However he has had the Green Guide column for some time now, so I suppose it's almost relevant, considering the content of that column.

    I could get there, vote at nine, coffee in Albert Park at ten, head there at noon and await the doors opening.

    Leave before the official stuff starts.

    Thanks for the notice.

    Mick.

    Terry Lane makes snide remarks about people who 'persist' with darkrooms in every second column he writes. He wonders why anyone would want to get their hands wet in this wonderful age of digi-heaven when perfection is just a click away. I imagine he must have suffered some terrible trauma in a darkroom in his formative years. He seems a strange choice to open a wet based photography exhibition...

    Not too bad an exhibition, there were four or five prints I quite liked, overall, a good representation of a normal cross section of photographers.

    Saw the darkroom, thanks Shane. Quite impressive for a club set-up and would be worth being a member of if you didn't have your own darkroom and lived reasonably close.

    Very well l laid out for a Club exhibition, and I had the good fortune of bumping into a couple of colleagues from long ago (2003). No sign of Shane, though: tch, tch: naughty! Never bolt into the blue on opening day!!

    My favourite was an atmospheric infrared monochrome print of an old home near Pyalong, closely followed by a blue-tinted print of derelict wagon wheels. The whole exhibition was of a quality that made the travel up and back from Geelong well worth while. Nice vino, too...

    Not keen about the choice of Terry Lane in the context of traditional photographic production.
