    Well, it's been an unusually crummy day today so I'm happy to have a diversion. Let's see, was it...Apocolypse Now!?

    I think the photojournalist / Marlon Brando diciple at one point dev's a roll of film dip-n-dunk style in a bathroom sink. Was he using Folgers?

    The film was "The Killing Fields". Great movie, but very disturbing.

    Ah, yes. I do believe you are correct sir. Forgot about that one. Excellent movie and, yes, I have to agree, not too easy to watch.

    Yep - Killing Fields - and it was Cambodia, dring the Khmer Rouge reign of terror... Pol Pot and his buddies shwing the mosre wonderful sides of human nature... very disturbing and powerful film.

    As far as movies that feature photography in a prominent way, City of God has a nice vintage Nikon playing a central role.

    And I also saw an exhibition of prints done by a local photographer from Toronto on urban decay and polution - the catch was, the prints were developed in water straight from Toronto harbor!

    Well, for photography, and especially those who enjoy classic cameras, you should make a point to locate and watch "Photographing Fairies" -- set in the 1920s, it ranges from plate cameras used in studio with barrel lens and pan flash to the "latest" high speed films and miniature equipment; I seem to recall even the use of bulb flash (screw base bulbs, of course). And all in pursuit of photographs of fairies that look like decent 1920s vintage montage fakes...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Those should be really helpful when you notice that the fixer went in before the developer!

    Calcium Cabronate is poorly soluble in water when compared to Na- or K-Carbonate that are easy to find and cheaper

    If Tylenol is close enough to p-aminophenol, maybe it will superadd to vitamin c. Then with a little laundry detergent for alkali, we would have a real household developer. It might cost more, but it would be fun. Coffee seems to make aspirin and tylenol work faster. A brew of coffee, tylenol and vitamin C with laundry detergent would at least make for good clean, healthy and painless negatives.

    Back to this--why the antacids anyway Brad?

    I just have the image in my head of this conversation:


    "Honey, what if I keep the BMW and buy an 8x10 camera?"

    That could possibly lead to an antacid encounter!

    Naw, It was all about work. Too much coffee, too much stress, etc...
