    Yeah I am pretty envious as wel....but my time will come. Then again I am lucky to have a darkroom at all. Think tonight I will make it dark again in my darkroom.

    The pieces are starting to fall in place . . .

    After living most of my life without a personal darkroom, that is about to change. For several years I've been hunting and gathering in anticipation of building a retirement home with a wet darkroom. This past weekend I finally got "wet" with the hekp of a plumber. There is still a bit to go, however the construction part is more or less complete. Here are a few photos of the space (about 9.5 feet wide on one end, 12.5 on the other, 15 feet long and 10 foot ceilings) and some of the stuff that will go in it. Most equipment was purchased used. I'm excited. The proof is in the pudding and I plan to post some of my images in the gallery section when it becomes operational. Bill Barber

    Hmmm, guess I better stick to analog if I can't get my dang digital images of the darkroom to attach to this post. What the heck did I do wrong, other than use a digital camera to record them? Small jpg less than 100KB.


    Never mind, I just figured it out.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    Finally pictures of my very small but dark darkroom! There is still some trim work to be done but it is light tight! There is a large shelf all down the right hand side wich I'm sure will come in handy. It has a lip built up around the wet side to keep the wet on that side. The waterproof counter is plenty big enough for my largest trays. I'll put up black paper on the wall and ceiling around the enlarger. The walls are all the white waterproof sheet paneling stuff so it is shiney. It will make it easy to wipe down. The door has an edge around it to make it light tight. There is a bathroom type fan above the wet side. There is plenty of room under the counters to store chems and all the equipment I have that I'm not useing (color analyzer, and all the stuff for color processing). I'll need more racks and storage containers. I wish the ceiling was higher but it is not so I'll have to do larger prints on the wall. My mini fridge is stocked with paper and I'm ready to go. I'll be mixing up the dektol tonight and will try and print tomorrow night. Yeah!! Anyway, here are digi pics of the small space. Sorry so many but it is so small I couldn't get an over all picture too well! It is not much but it is mine!
