    Who here abosultly love thier darkroom.. ?

    Sounds like obvious question. Last night I was printing out some 5x7 on RC paper. Some family pic to put in photo album, as I was watching my image come up, I stood back and looked at what I had in my darkroom, and what I was doing. Listening to my music, occationally sip a glass of wine. knowing my family will benefit from my labor of love. We all have a wonderful skill on what and how we do photography. I feel so blessed.

    I certainly used to, and when I get my new darkroom up and running soon, I will again!

    Me too. Space for a darkroom was a major criteria to me when buying my house. If/when I sell my house, it will again be a criteria in its replacement's selection.

    I love the darkroom I have now, as it was designed in the plan when we had our house built. I'm old enough now to know I'll never move to another place. (can't afford to anyway). I've had a darkroom in every place I've lived since my first in 1973. Even if it was in a bathroom as a temporary set up, or made with black plastic sheeting in a garage. I've always loved having a place to go make pictures, relax, and learn new things.

    Whenever I get a house there will be a dedicated, running water, temp adjuster, and plastic sink, darkroom.

    I remember a while back I went to this local camera store when I was getting stuff together for my darkroom. I was talking with sales guy, must of been in his 60's. I told him that I was getting together a darkroom and discussion led to him saying "I used to have a darkroom..I dont miss it". I was thinking "how sad". I can understand that some people don't liketo toil over stuff when easier take photos and drop on a computers and look. I don't know.. there is something special about something being hand made. There is something theraputic being in that room.
