    Announcing a new addition to my family!

    Last night I became the proud "mom" of a Beseler 23 II, just like the one I already have! It's kinda like having twins...several years apart.

    I have been 'in talks' with a local pro photog who's a member of the same camera club, and last night he brought it to the meeting and sold it to me for $50. This is just fabulous! now I won't have to keep stopping & changing the darned lens when I want to enlarge 35mm.

    I am a happy camper today!

    Congratulation! I am glad that you have the room for your large family. I had to put my 23C up for adoption when I got my 45M.

    You actually enlarge your 35mm? Gosh, I am so in love with those wonderful small prints that I never even considered doing that.

    Congrats!! I first learned enlarging on a Beseler 23 and figured that would be the one I'd eventually buy. Fond memories!

    I'm sure you'll love it every bit as much as the first one. I've had two of them (not simultaneously) and still have my 23C with dichro head alongside my Beseler 45M*** (not sure which variety).

    Lucky you, BWgirl. I do have two enlargers, but in my small apartement there is place only for one to be ready to work. So, despite having two of them I still have to change lenses, negative carriers, condensers, mixing chambers...

    I needed to hear this today... my day at work hasn't been the best.

    In a recent discussion about using an enlarger to print 35mm negs using alternative processes, I mentioned my series of contact printed 35mm cyanotypes and 6x6/6x7 Polaroid Transfers. Nobody responded to my suggestion that this is as valid a solution as every one else's suggestions for paper negs and other techniques to easily generate larger negs for contact printing... implying that I am crazy.

    I like teenie-weenie prints, and I'm proud to say that. Thank you Claire for restoring my confidence and self-concept. I may be a bit odd, but I'm NOT crazy! Now if you could help restore my hair... Oh, my receeding hairline ;-)

    p.s. Congrats BWGirl Jeanette!
