    Revisiting old negatives is fun. I think differently now than I did 40 years ago, and my prints show it. I find I did some better work than I thought years ago, also did some pretty bad work.

    I don't often print my old negs, usually I keep at it the first time, until I get it right.
    Although there have been times when I've given up and had to revisit at a later date - more experience and less stress can work wonders!!

    But if for some reason I need a creative boost or just want to try something new, I'll get out a favourite neg and start experimenting. It's always interesting to see where I started and where I end up, even if the second print run yields some pretty awful results.

    I have started reprinting some of my old negs now that my technique has expanded and, I hope, improved. People who have seen the results side by side with the old ones have commented that they like the new ones better. That makes me feel it's been worthwhile.

    My 14-year old B&W triptych, "The Moorings", printed to Ilford FB paper from Delta 100 negs, has been reprinted over 12 editions, all but 3 eds selling in a variety of frames as per customer requests (with one Greek couple asking that the frames be given a roughened, weathered look and stained puffin blue to remind them of old fishing boats back home in Greece!). Unsurprisingly, the negatives for this production are precious (i.e. in a Bank deposit box). Our family has negatives from the 1940s (including several of my late father in uniform as a Leading Aircraftsman in WWII) and into the 1980s when I, as the only person stepping forth with a burgeoning interest in photography, switched to reversal (Kodachrome 200), with only occasional use of B&W negative film. One day... I don't know when... we'll have to get some of these printed.
