    Kind of, I'm relegated to the laundry these days ): Takes a while to get it up and going but I love the time spent in there...even if the space is a bit dodgy.

    My current darkroom is a wonderful space and I remember when making it I also wanted it to be a thinking room, which it has become.

    Love it indeed! Many enjoyable hours spent in there. Best was my first day learning to print Cibachromes from

    Kodachrome slides. Felt like wonderful magic. (1970's), had darkrooms since 1950's.

    Best regards,

    /Clay

    Idle conversation with a female work colleague on Tuesday:
    Q) "What did you do over the Bank Holiday weekend ?"
    A) "Spent most of the time hidden away in a dark room."

    "Awww... poor lad, not feeling well.." <Big Hug>

    I still love working in the darkroom. It's kind of a sanctuary for me. So much of our lives is fast paced and seemingly now-driven, but making darkroom prints is wonderfully slow and nuanced. For myself, it's a very meditative process.

    I feel like the luckiest guy alive to have a DR. I love getting some time to print and sometimes if I've little time I enjoy simply straightening/organizing/cleaning etc, getting ready for my next print session.

    Isn't it where the magic happens?
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I love the space, I just don't presently have much time in my life to use it much. Between my elderly mom, and my active tweens, along with everyday things like housework and the day job, me time to dive into the darkroom and not feel rushed is in short supply at the moment.

    We have been reviewing our financial plans, and have just had my conservative presumptions and projections independently confirmed.
    It presntly looks like we are on track to maintain our currently comfortable to us lifestyle with me stepping away from working full time in another 5years, and then ramp down to nothing if I feel like it after another 6 years when my wife is ready to retire.

    Todd B has been by my place 6 or more years ago, to buy some wash test solution I had mixed. up.
    He knows that I have lots of space to nest in the dark, and lots of gear to fill it, and the rooms next to it.
    my real name, imagine that.
