    hi clive

    a few months ago there was a poster who looked forward to reusing his fixer bottles ( glass ) for
    beer making ... there are people who pour their spent chemicals on their vegetable garden as well ...
    so it wouldn't surprise me that there would be people who store photochems in their fridge

    i think 1 in 10 is a general rule for everything, including common sense ...

    Glycin powder from the Formulary in the freezer. That's the only one. Used for classic Ansco 130. Well-labeled and in the opaque black plastic bag in which it comes delivered. One could never mistake it for a frozen dinner. Freezing extends the notoriously short-lived powder's effectiveness almost indefinitely.

    Unfortunately (for you) that information isn't worth much.

    Common sense is not that common as my favourite teacher used to say.
    I once made some negative developer and needed a bottle and did not have one. After looking around I found an old apple juice bottleand put the developer in there.
    It was summer and warm and I wanted it to keep longer. I put it in the fridge!
    The next day my girlfriend comes home and is thirsty and takes a drink.
    That was about 12 years ago and she has developed into a lovely woman getting prettier from day to day.

    Do others ever dream such things?
    You should have stayed asleep and seen what "developed" in the dream. Since the chemical is part of the gum bichromate process, the dream could have gone into an alternate-process dream reality.

    The only photographic dreams I've had have been walking and bicycling along with my Super Graphic, with the setting sun creating a beautiful setting around me. Quite relaxing.

    Funny thing, last night I had another photographic dream. I was in some semi-commercial neighborhood with my Fuji GA645zi, and there was a really neat sunset. I had to move to try and get the power lines out of the way. As I moved, I would move into a position where the power lines were lower. Finally I was on hands and knees, and I decided I had enough shots and enough of the power lines, so I woke up.

    Too bad I can't transfer my dreams to Portra.

    In one dream I had, a few friends where trying to develop a print in their toilet bowl. But no matter how hard they tried they couldn't get anything other than a faint image, so they called me in for help but I don't think I did much. I remember it was set in Paris.

    Another one was where I was in the city and there where two hotels,(only one exists in real life) one of the hotels (it was just used as storage for the new hotel that had superceded it) had three levels and on the second they rented studios to artists and I had one there. I was working on a big collage about two meters wide and one high, it was covered in dark red metalic paint with lines on it connecting up various crops of photographs; but when I would leave the room to enter the hall I was contantly attacked by a possesed toy police car with a large hibernating insect attached to it! But when I came back later on the hotel was on fire, and I said to the many spectators "I've got thirty years of photos in that room!"

    For a few months I kept having these dreams nearly every night that I was developing film under my bed covers, almost every bloody night! It drove me mad.

    I don't think I've had any crazy photography dreams, although the other night I totally had a dream that I was using an M3 double stroke (not sure what lens was on it) but I took a trip to the mall with it and was trying to buy a 50mm Summicron off some guy hah.

    Is there a Tasmania devil? Or is it just a cartoon character? Has it ever featured in your dreams?
