In no time you're out on the street jonesing for a bigger neg, a larger camera and even bigger trays. Passersby look at you strangely as you mumble about too big an SBR, minus development and the woes of illford. Some ass calls you a Zonazi but you are lost, stumbling further into the gutter, no longer looking at the people who go by as humans just wallets and purses, the dollars you need for just another box.
    Geez, sounds like an ideal life, huh? I can hardly wait, the unfortunate thing is that I have a very vivid mental picture of myself doing that in New York City. -Grant

    Nah you'ld just fit in there.

    To make it really worth while, you need to move to a small town. Better yet do it in your own home town where people know you. Your neighbors could say things like-"I remember that boy when he was normal, stayed away from all that sheet film stuff". And another person could say-"I hear he just got out of prison for breaking into old man johnson's photo shop. I hear they found him naked on the floor covered with empty Tri-X boxes". Then they could give you some change and say something else like-"His poor parents, they must be devistated".

    You are a brave man using film your first time out, but I guess with 5x7 a polaroid back was not possible.

    Here is my first attempt using a 4x5...

    Never seen a 4x5 contact? Now that's a crying shame! Send me your address and I'll drop one in the mail for you.

    Cheers,
