This seems like the place to mention that I finally collected all the darkroom gear necessary and printed from some of the negatives I've been piling up since August. I've notice one immediate effect: an 8x10 doesn't seem anywhere near as large as it used to...

And yet another man is lured into the poorhouse by the call of the silver siren!

Lord! I pray you to give this man access to 16x20 and 20x24 paper! Make it a quick an merciful bankruptcy! 11x14 is such a slow and painful way to go!

Why stop there? I've thought of painting a 10' x 12' wall with liquid light and exposing it from one of mine.

P.S.
Congratulations Rob. How are they?

there is/was a guy on the f32 largeformat listserve that rented a room in a Toronto hotel, removed the furniture and fastened mural paper to the wall opposite the window, then blocked off... (okay so he blocked off the window first

Any way he did an 8 hour exposure via a pin hole of the Toronto skyline. He's been having a heck of a time in the dark room trying to contact print his paper neg and getting it even. I believe there were three sheets 36" x 10 feet, so that makes an 8x10 print, just in feet instead of inches.

8'x10' would be pretty hard for me to display in my small old house. (-: I don't think there's that much clear run of wall anywhere in the place...

As for the prints, they came out about as I expected--a few choice negatives seemed to print quite nicely on the first try at Grade 2, and others look like they'll give me an education at dodging and burning. Or I'll have to go reshoot the subjects. Hmmm...I guess that's a win either way.

More printing today, I hope.
