    Ok, if you read any early life histories of Ansel you will hear that he often explored Lobos Creek as a boy. This creek is less than a mile from me as I type this. I will soon be selling small 4 ounce bottles of water obtained from this creek. 1-2 drops put into your neg wash water (I recommend you add it around the time you add Photo Flo) will cause an immediate glow to the water and the negatives. This flash or glow will fade quickly and will not be immediately evident in viewing the negatives but when printing watch out, the difference vs. not using Ansel's Lobos Creek water will be obvious!

    Please PM me. 4 ounce bottles for $30 each plus shipping. Limit 5 bottles per person. Each bottle can treat up to 30 rolls of film.

    This is a limited time offer and may not be repeated so act now.

    Ben,yes, the old jokes are always the best but maybe my joke fails because it is two nations separated by a common language and that "passing water" just doesn't have the same mirth making qualities in the U.S.

    Never mind - I won't give up the day job

    Hmm, I'm American and I understood that phrase. But what is mirth? Maybe there is more mirth on your side of the pond than on ours.

    It was a long time ago I went to school, but doesn't water get broken down and reformed during photosynthesis by plants and the burning of sugar by animals? - Oh, I have forgotten where this was going, I need more coffee, just keep chatting amongst yourselves

    I asked one of my sons who went to university in America if the term "passing water" for urination would be understood there, he said "it certainly would dad, in a population of sixty million there are plenty of piss artists" http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict...sh/piss-artist

    Be careful that you don't get any water used by Lisette Model. She once said, "Darling, if you think my prints are bad then you should see my negatives."
