    Not that I don't lack ability as well. But what annoys me more is my impatience. I must plan my work before I enter my darkroom. Becauce when I am there, I become this kid in a candystore... And just rush around doing stuff, without thinking.

    Nothing!

    I love it there.
    It is a set of tools that allows me to do what I have wanted to do for a long time. It is a place where I learn to do new and hopefully better things. Some times the tools don't work correctly. Sometimes the operator doesn't work correctly, but it is all part of the learning process.
    I love it there.

    I'm one of the fortunate ones, I have a darkroom with everything I need. What I find particularly annoying is anyone coming to the door with a question or a phone call. It is a separate building in the back yard. This weekend my son needed to ask if I would run him on an errand (while measuring some developer), lost track due to time questions and had to dump the mix and start over. I intentionally don't have a phone plugged in, to avoid interruptions. Need to re-state my policy of "If I'm in there, do not disturb." tim

    The fact that it is never done, and always in a state of flux... For instance, I have added a second Beseler 45M that has a 45A head (for the new adventures in color). But the enlarger bench is torn down to make changes that will accomodate two, so.... Before that is even done, a fortuitous gift of some high-end benches and drawers will cause a complete reconstruction of the presentation side, making a real working space for the dry mount press and mat cutter. At this rate, I ought to be back in and working by spring...

    Not in the darkroom per se (a bathrooom in my case) but finding the time to get in there is the biggest pain I have.

    ditto since mine is a windowless bathroom as well, theres more chemicals in there than there are wife's materials. Fortunatly i only have to worry if my wife is feeling like dying her hair, otherwise the bathroom is fair game.

    My darkroom is going to be alive the first part of november. about that i'm having only thinking fun of how cool it will be to have one of my own. but it annoys me that I can't choose wich paper to buy for my first prints and what developer and on and on. think i'm going to the nearest store and look what they have in stock.

    The only thing that annoys me about my darkroom is that I do not instantly transform into a world-class printer when I step inside it! I mean, come on! Superman has his phone booth, Batman has the Bat Cave... all I want is to step into the darkroom & become Super BWGirl!!!

    ...getting tickled in the dark...
    I mean you are there in the darkness, minding your own business, printing and all and suddently a mean bastard puts finds your sensitive spots and make your drop your trays, negs and tongs all over the place.
    God I hate them.
    I wonder how they get in too, since the door doesn't open without a key...
    Damn gnomes.

    Jeanette - Have you tried putting your pants on outside your trousers?

    Well, I think you're super, anyway...!


    Ari - Sorry 'bout that. Won't happen again...
