I do about 90-95 percent of the cooking for my family at home. I do think that cooking is much like darkroom work for me. Infact, my daughter has started an interest to be with me in the darkroom but I asked her to join me first in the kitchen. Once she uderstands that weights and measures of cooking and the final results come from careful work. Then she will join me in the darkroom.
One other observation I have had. All artists and all photographers enjoy a good meal, a good bottle of wine or beer, good friends and good conversation.
