    Life changes, but the darkroom remains a treasure

    Not sure if this is the right place, but I wanted to share with you my joy at getting into the darkroom today for the first time in 9 months. My wife and I were blessed with a daughter last summer. It's been a wonderful experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world. That being said, seeing ten all-but-abandoned rolls of film come off my developing reels this morning felt better than it ever has. Life changes, but the darkroom's magic remains. Now for an early rise tomorrow to print! Awesome.

    Happily,
    Leo

    Know how you feel, I was kept out of the darkroom for a few months last year by a severe shortage of water, gue to a long drought, and when I got back in there, wow, Congrats on the Baby.

    Congratulations!

    9 months, eh? Our little boy was born in October and I'm itching to get printing - I've got a 15 roll back log so far!
