    I once dreamed I drank developer, but it was just a cup of coffee.

    Or was it orange juice?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Do others ever dream such things?
    Sounds like you need to get laid more.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    The other night I dreamt that I opened a 100-sheet box of paper in room light and ruined it all. It definitely beats chess or math dreams. I used to have those and not only are they ridiculously dull but they left me exhausted in the morning.

    hmm... about half of my waking life concerns photography and my camera is never out of sight... try thirty years of that... and in all that time, not a single dream with photography in it... maybe my photographs are my dreams

    Potassium dichromate does look inviting I never had such dream but my good friend Paul Taylor of Renaissance Press did wake up to such nightmare. A few years back, he was having some "friends" staying overnight. He was awoken by one of them in the middle of the night saying that he drank an orange liquid from a large, ugly black jug, marked as poison, in a chemicals only refrigerator that Paul keeps in his basement. Sleepwalking? Stupid? Paul rushed him to a nearby hospital where they proceeded to pump his stomach. A few weeks later, he gets slapped with a lawsuit. Of course the guy was full of it and it turned out that he had done this before for financial gain.

    Now, Clive, make sure you don't sleepwalk and hit the fridge for some cool aid

    back in the days of the ( american ) prohibition, when making and consuming
    alcohol was illegal john garo, the boston portrait photographer ( karsh's menotor )
    used to regularly have his friends ( arthur fiedler and other big wigs )
    over to his studio to party. he would always use buckets labelled fixer, developer &c
    as containers with booze in them, so if they were busted by the vice-squad it would look like
    photography chemicals, not hooch. he was well known as not only a portrait photographer
    but as a pictorialist, brought pt/pd and gum-overs back from the dead, so whoknows
    maybe he also had a bucket that read potassium dichromate in the room that he
    was passing around to his friends ...

    Max, all my chemicals are stored in a cabinet in the darkroom and the darkroom is about 20 yards from the house in the back garden. I would never, even if labelled store photographic chemicals in the domestic fridge. Do others?

    Brian does your wife know you post here? If not what will you give me for not telling her?
    The funny thing is a lot of these dreams have really happened with me. Girlfriend drank developer, camera bag rolling down a hill into a river with me running after it like Indiana Jones running away from the boulder.
