    Photographic Dreams and Nightmares

    I don’t often have these, but last night I dreamt I was clearing out a darkroom cupboard and I came across a bottle of liquid wrapped in a dark bag. I started carrying it down a road and I could hear the liquid sloshing about which made me thirsty, so I opened the bag, unscrewed the top and drank some. At the same time I remembered it was Potassium Dichromate. I spat it out immediately, but the horror of such an act woke me from my nightmare.
    Do others ever dream such things?

    Interesting. I have flown, drown, and been buried alive in dreams but never drank poisons. For the erotic dreams I've lied and tol my wife it was her in the dream.

    I had a girlfriend who had a dream that I was in a swimming pool with another woman, and put my arm around the woman and smiled up at her, the girlfriend.
    For that I got the silent treatment for a full day and snippyness for nearly a week. And occasional reminders more than a year later. Note that she had the dream. Also note that she's an ex-GF.
    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.

    ...I always have dreams that I've dropped my camera (in a lake, off a cliff, etc.) or my darkroom went up in flames/submersed in water or all my negatives got stolen or destroyed. It's a huge relief when I wake up in the morning. Never dreamt of drinking the chemicals though. As a vegetarian of 11+ years, I often have dreams of eating big macs and stuff like that, but that's a whole other field of psycho analysis.

    mine generally involve finding a load of lovely antique cameras that I can't quite get my hands on, a la alice chasing the egg around the knitting shop.

    Quite happy generally, although when I was about 13, my father took me to a camera shop to buy me a camera. I suggested a Leica, but he bought me an Agfa Super Silette. That could say something!

    there may be a deep-rooted problem here.
    You will need to come and see me every week for ninety minutes. It should not take more than four or five years to sort out, but my charges are quite reasonable (60 guineas an hour)

    My California psychologist already has this in hand for a slightly reduced price to your suggestion.
