    Wet plate photographer Joe Smigiel converted an older Class C motorhome into a wet plate darkroom several years ago. Some of us took to calling it the Magic Bus but I haven't seen Joe for a couple of years. At one point I thought I saw a website with photos of the conversion, but I can't find it now and it may have just been a figment of my imagination...

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

    Sally Mann was using a late 1990's vintage Jeep Grand Cherokee for her wet plate coating/developing. In addition to my teaching and fine art work, I am doing a lot more commercial work. I have been considering getting a Ford Transit since it can accommodate racks and shelving in the back.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    I thought the Transit would be a great vehicle for travel with cameras as well. It's economical and lots of room, but I need 4WD.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    I think the major modification Ansel always made was to build a platform on top of the vehicle where he could set up his tripod. As for darkroom, a changing bag and a developing tank will take care of negatives, and then when you get home print 'em.
