Hi, I've been lurking for awhile but never introduced myself, so here goes. I've been a photographer for about 40 years and actually made a living at it as a printer for around 18. I lost my lower left leg thanks to diabetes 5 years ago so that slowed me down abit.
These days the only labs left to make a living at are in New York, which is about an hour away. My leg's not up to that yet so I built a nice little darkroom in my kitchen and have gotten back into b/w printing. Since I don't have a boss hasseling me, I can print what I want now. Fun stuff, Not that printing in NYC wasn't interesting. I worked near the Village and printed for some interesting photographers.
Enough babel, this is a great site.
