    I love the whole process! I love working with my Beseler 23C and my GraLab timer. I love processing prints and I really love my safelight. I don't think that there is anything that I don't like about darkroom. I even love to mix chemicals.

    Don't you mean "carefully backed away"?

    Another smell in the same category?

    Kodachrome.

    Open a new roll while you still have the chance. Pop the plastic top and immediately smell the canister inside. Heaven on earth.

    Moma don't take my Kodachrome away!
    Oops, Kodak just did!
    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    I grew up on the farm, and I can't remember ever doing that. I'm sure my Dad would have punished me severely if I had.

    I love the quiet, the dark and the light, the silence and the noise (sometimes music), the rhythm, the machines and gadgets, the standardization and my tweaks, the individuality, and the unforgiving but honest results.

    I love the grain! Nothing looks better than a completely unantialiased, unsampled, ununsharp masked, unadjusted optical print. It looks completely natural, because it is. Just light on gelatin and silver. Very plain and beautiful.
    f/22 and be there.

    I have to say that the smell of the Darkroom is my favorite. The next favorite thing is seeing the image appear on the paper. It is magical and never seems to be ordinary no matter how many times I print. The alone time. Just me and my paper, enlarger, negatives trays and chems making images. It is all pretty magical.

    I love everything about darkroom, even the screw-ups, except I'm always a bit apprehensive at the sound of the running water. It has a way of awakening the need to "tinkle", often as I'm making the exposure at the enlarger and still have the wet (no pun intended) process yet to do So when the light is FINALLY turned on it's up two flights of stairs in our tri-level (using the sink is NOT an option). Dang! Never even thought of installing a commode when designing the darkroom.
