    You know what makes darkroom work a blast - when you have the confidence to know that the negative will come out as you visualised and executed it - when you have a beautiful negative in hand and know that the print will make it all seem worthwhile. All procedures of course accompanied by a bottle of wine (red preferred, white if that is all I got). Heck, anything with wine is good!

    Well, standing over a sink shaking the can is drudgery, but listening to the news on the radio while standing over a sink shaking the can is better exercise than listening to the news on the radio and lounging on the couch.

    SO why are you registered and participating on a site that deals almost entirely with what you call drudgery, and shuns quite loudly what you consider to be fullfilling? It does not make sense.

    By the way Drudgery is sitting in front of a computer working on a photograph, that would look better if it had been done through an archaic process.

    Photo.net seems to have a lot of people who feel and think the way you do.

    Is not a thesis a long laboroius discourse that has taken months if not years of research and refining? You made a bland statement not a thesis that would have been a scholarly work. YOU may not like darkroom work. It is a falacy to lump everyone else into your same mode. You have a mind set that is impenetrable and archaic in reverse. A closed mind is a waste. No amount of talking/posting by us would ever penetrate the barrier you have put up. As they say, "If you don't like the kitchen, get out!"

    Bill, not sure how you expected folks to react to your comments. Consider that this IS an Analog Photography User Group site...if you are not inclined to enjoy Analog photography that is fine, just don't expect everyone to embrace your attitude. No reason to get into a flame war here.

    Obviously some great music makes the time go faster when doing film. How about some Manhein Steamroller, Fresh Air 1 thru 5, or even some Gaelic Storm. Dancing a jig while while trying to time 15 sec agitation intervals with PMK is a pretty good cardio workout.
    Time & tides wait for no one, especially photographers.
