    welcome aboard - from the GTA

    I look at the gallery, and think "I should get organised and put some of my stuff up there for feedback". I then get too many other 'opportunities'.

    I was all set to buy an Epson in March 07, and then in April I bought and rehabilitated a roller processor.

    Then I was about to in October 07, when some mad money cash accumulated. I started shooting portraits more steadily, and was growing weary of 4- aa cell flash units dying, or taking forever to recycle. So I spent some money rehabbing some 'potato masher' type flash units that live on robust lead acid batteries. I also bought some real stands and backdrop supports about a month later when the duct taped solutions were no longer portable enough.

    Then the mad money cash was building again around Christmas. Finallly, I thought; and then I was gifted a whole whack of 4x5 film among other gifted supplies (totalling $2K-3K), and the free use of a studio camera and lenses from another friend. That drove the nail into my unfullfilled lust for a 'real' flash system. I went out scrounng for a deal, and found on Craig'slist a 2400w/s speedotron black line pack and three heads.

    Now I am working on cleaning up , finishing off, and creating 'overflow' darkroom space in the laundry room for a future 4x5 enlarger, since the dark room I work out of will not ever have room to fit such a beast in it.

    Ah what a mad middle age compulsion I have. I'm glad I get such pleasure out of it. And here at APUG there are others who can understand me. In a way it can function akin to an Alcohlics Anonynmous. Only here we call our complsion GAS - Gear Aquistiion Syndrome.

    Welcome. You are sick. It is an epidemic here. There is no cure. Don't want one.
