    My lucky day!!!

    I did some special work for doctor and his wife that I met. After I finished restoring their floor we got to talking about the arts and naturally photography came up. He used to do all of his own Black & White developing and no longer has time. he noticed my passion for the craft of photography and gave me about 400 sheets total of Oriental Seagull graded 2,3,4 some Kodak Elite Fine art and some Agfa Bovira and Rapid Portriga. I have never used these papers before and I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with them. I only started developing and printing my own work about 4 years ago so this will be a real treat. What can I expect?
