    I had some fun last night...

    I've kind of felt things have been rather serious around here and when I feel the "heavy" I find that souping a bunch of film helps to calm my nerves. I've also finally set up a very small darkroom in the half bath but that post will have to wait until I scan some of the prints.

    HI Alan, it sounds like you are starting to feel at home, in your new location. Glad to see you back to developing film, looking forward to seeing some of the results.

    David, David, David...I would never have hung negatives to dry in the garage when I lived in Utah. Now I live in New Jersey and the air is positively moist. Sounds gross and sometimes it is
    I haven't noticed a dust problem from hanging negs in the house and don't expect a problem in the garage either. My biggest hazard is fingerprints form my two year old. I'll take a closer look at them when I get home today just to ease my mind. Thanks for making me paranoid

    I should also give a shout-out to a few members who have held my hand as I figured out developing: Sharon (Shmoo), Aggie, and Per Volquartz. Many emails and phone conversations have made me fairly confident in developing. I feel like the poster boy for the benefits of APUG.

    I wonder if this is the first time large format film has been dried on a line that appears as if it has been strung on the handlebars of a bike and tricycle?

    Well...some are better than others. I'm still figuring out the Petzval projector lens and packard shutter combo. Out of the 12 I think there's 3 or 4 that I really like. In a year I probably won't like any of them, hopefully because I've become a better photographer.

    You've been spending too much time on the toy camera forums-haha.
    I moved out here three months ago. I got tired of waiting for the Utah members to have a big get together and figured the east coasters were a safe bet

    You moved to Oregon didn't you? For school? Hope things are working out on the other coast.
