    London Darkrooms Exposed!

    Hello
    I'm sure most people here are like me and find it fascinating looking in other people's darkrooms. Here's a photographer who has done a project on London printer's darkrooms. http://www.richardnicholson.com/
    They are all on the opening page but you have to scroll down a bit. Mine's in there somewhere looking relatively tidy! Haven't counted how many De Vere's there are compared to Dursts yet.
    Cheers
    Mike

    Virtually all small stuff

    I thought my darkroom was a mess, now I realise how tidy it is, well at least until it's decommissioned and moves across Europe.

    Interesting it's virtually all De Vere and Durst, but probably more De Vere's.

    ...not to mention the number of Beard easels on show... But I note someone just had to be different in that area

    The table tennis player's t shirt is missing a letter. It should read..Arrest me I'm Blanksy. I'm sure Michael won't mind me saying that. LOL

    Doesn't help settle the question "what colour should my darkroom walls be".

    Ah yes, that will be the Saunders 4 blade. Great easel, though I used to have a Salthill 5 blade which was a lovely and heavy bit of kit. However, my Beard 20x24 easel is just out of shot on the next enlarger. Like most others, it too has tape at the corner to ensure the two blades are at 90 degrees!!

    Mike, great link indeed. Thanks.

    What's that huge thing in the middle of the first picture (Roy Bass's darkroom)? Well, I guess it's an enlarger, but what a monster!

    Cheers,

    Though, maybe it does. One could interpret it as 'color of your walls (especially behind the enlarger) doesn't matter!'
