Hey Richard, hey John! Whadya say we have another gathering once this rank weather pushes off. I wouldn't mind coming down to Richmond or going to the coast or such but we could organize another shoot over here too. I'd like to go visit the cypresses again....

Albumen: don't do it! Don't get sucked into that! Alright... I will admit I'd like to try it myself, but... it is quite an undertaking and the prints are not archival, so I think you just need to have your motives well sorted before jumping in. (this coming from the guy who plans to do egg tempera handpainting) I think Joe Harrigan in W'boro may have done some albumen.

I would like to see your azo stuff John, let's do it soon. BTW remind me of your format, was it 8x20? I am just fixing up an 11x14 and am looking for holders, if you have any tips...

Richard, I have two 5x7 contact printers that you could borrow to play with. I have been using them for cyanos and Pt/Pd; for silver you'd want something to time the lights.
