    old daze

    Back in the "Good Ol' Days" of film darkrooms (in the 1990s) the EPA came by the little rural newspaper where I was working. We developed black and white and made b&w prints and used the regular chemicals one used at that time. The EPA guy said they could fine us $15,000 a day for sticking that stuff down the sewer pipe. It is something to think about.

    No. I have one set of cabinets under the microwave, and she and the cat know that everything that's related to B&W film developing goes under there. The cat is only interested in the pantry door, and seems to go in there now and then at night to check on her food cans and bags, but she's unpredictable, so I have the film cabinet door fixed so that she can't paw it open and go exploring.

    All the enlarger and print related stuff is in one of the bathrooms, and the cameras are in a dresser drawer. The negs folder is on the kitchen table.... A full darkroom would really be nice.

    My darkroom is in the basement, and I share water source with the laundry area. I develop film and wash prints in the utility sink there.

    We have three cats, so I thoroughly clean the area after each use, using tray cleaner or Permawash on spots of chemicals, and then wash the sink down and mop the floor. I don't think it's actually necessary because I'm very careful when I work, but it helps keep the place tidy and sanitary.

    I would not use photography chemicals in the kitchen. If not for health reasons, then at least for peace of mind.

    maybe that's how they get bone-less chickens at the ranch ?
    That's it!! That's gotta be it!!

    I just knew there had to be something wrong with me!

    I ate too much rhubarb as a kid...

    I don't think she'd kill me, but she'd probably disappear me.

    But that would be better than eating rhubarb anything.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.
