One afternoon in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys began to fight Back to back they faced each other
Pulled out their swords and shot each other
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and killed the two dead boys.
Now if you think this tale is tall
Ask the blind man, for he saw it all.
I think I first heard this over forty years ago. I think I'm getting stage one alzheimers...
After I press them, they go in an old photo paper box, all lined up, one box per edition. (I make my relatively small runs of a print at the same time.) The next time one gets moved is when I pull the top one out to mount it, when it is going to somebody.
And now I've got Blondie stuck in my head, from Rapture
You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face, dance cheek to cheek
One to one, man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow, 'cause the man from Mars
Is through with cars, he's eatin' bars
Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture, be pure
My Mitsubishi Gekko FB 8x10s are still flat and pristine after 40 years of face to face and back to back storage. I'm not in nearly as good condition after all those years in a variety of positions. Maybe you young squirts can take notice, do your dancing cheek to cheek, and stay younger than I did.
thanks to you who have so far all taken part in my goofy survey.
lately i have been making 5 from each negative - contact prints.
i wash them face to face/back to back and dry them face down,
and then when i store them (pre mount / pre envelope)
they snooze face to face/back to back again.
i have always had good luck that way
-- my paper has a mind of its own and likes to curls if i line them up ...
so i wondered if anyone else does the same thing.
