    Well I finally got a scanner installed and acually figured out how to get something scanned. So here are some quick shots of the new darkroom (officially opened Apr 1). About 7 years late - we started on the new house then got a lot of attention taken by caring for ageing parents (now deceased) and taking care of my wife's brother while he was dying of cancer. So a planned 3-year project took 10 years to complete. Now with all that behind us, we are at least grateful to have our lives back and the darkroom - better late than never!

    Kate, you sound impressed.

    The way I see it, the biggest difference between this and the person printing in the bathroom is convenience. I have seen some phenominal prints come out of very makeshift facilities. In the end, the most important tools are the vision and skill of the photographer. As I contemplate approaching geezerhood, convenience is a big plus for me. I hope I can live up to the promise of the facility.

    Bob,

    You're right. I just really appreciate a well set up darkroom. You've waited a very long time for your space and it's time you got to enjoy it! Have many happy hours in your space!

    I print in a cooperative darkroom that I run and maintain (it's in a nonprofit artist run center). It's not exactly pristine but I spend many happy hours in it and that's what counts! I'll have to take a recent photo of it and post it. I'm the only one who keeps my own enlarger there. (I'm the one who probably uses the darkroom the most so that's fair)

    All the Best
    Kate

    My enlarger is a Durst M601 and it's underneath the pillow case coverings in the far left corner. We also built lockers so members could store their paper and whatever else they like to print with.

    I think the lockers is a great idea. When I was going to a group darkroom after work in the winter - I had to haul everything into the office so it wouldn't be frozen.

    Some really nice setups here. You guys/gals are in a whole `nother class. I'm delighted just to have the corner of our unfinished basement.

    This image was from a test roll of a then, newly acquired Pentax H3. I'm not in the habit of photographing the darkroom or scanning B&W negs, but here goes.

    Don't laugh.

    Chris,

    Very cool! As long as it works that's really all that matters!
