    Back in the darkroom

    After a long hiatus, I am back in business in my new darkroom. My first posting is from August, during the major addition to the house. I took some time to make a couple of pictures. Here are Radley and I, captured on 35 year old Agfa Pan 400. This is a crop of a 4x5 negative in a 75 mm camera. 30 seconds exposure. HC-110 dil H.

    Wonderful portrait, and congrats on both your remodel and the official reopening of your darkroom.

    Radley and you both did pretty good for 30 seconds! I need to get back in the swing of things too. I really don't have an excuse either.....

    Looks like the film is maturing nicely and you are not doing so bad yourself.
    I bet you will be glad to see the last of the brick dust, normality returns as the safe light is turned on.
    Hope the weather is not too bad.
    Does light still exist if we're not looking?

    Mango ( my "avatar" ) would never hold still for 30 seconds if there is a camera! Great to hear your darkroom is ready!
