    Hello from Chicago!

    Greetings APUG. I had been shooting almost exclusively digital for the last 10 years when I recently found my old Minox 35MB. I loaded it up and took it outside, because it was a good excuse to get away from the pixel pushing I do all day. After I ran through the roll, I realized I had a shutter that was only firing about 30% of the time. Instead of giving it up and heading back to digital, I've pushed further in. Since then I've picked up FED-2 and just acquired a Yashica-D. Now I have my eyes on the look out for an Olympus 35 RC. If I'm not careful, I'll probably end up with bathroom darkroom before I know it.

    Welcome!

    Chicago is one of my favourite cities. I love Gene & Georgetti's and The Cape Cod Room.

    Hello from Highland Park. If you want to do BW film, you should at least develop the film. It is really quite simple to do. Sounds like John may have some stuff...I may even have a set of reels and a tank you could have. If you are interested and willing to pick it up, let me know and I'll check to make sure I actually have it!

    Well, I wasn't expecting to get restaurant advice as well as photography advice. Thanks for all the tips! I'll definitely look in to that community darkroom. I'm sure my girlfriend would be happier with that rather than a jug of developer next to her shampoo.

    The Cape Cod Room is in the Drake Hotel. I've spent many a happy afternoon there sipping martinis and having oysters at their raw bar
