The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.

The End, and Beginning

Day before yesterday I went and did it…I packed up and sold every bit of darkroom equipment I had..all of it, I got nothing left. I will tell you I feel great. I have been procrastinating getting the darkroom back up and running, to the point I had purchased not one, but two complete darkroom set ups. A couple of Sundays ago I loaded a roll of 120 Tri X that I had shot into the developing tank and souped it…it was no fun what so ever. Then and there I decided that the end had arrived. Uncle Henry’s, Craig’s List and a number of other internet postings were made and within two days..SOLD! I helped the guy load it into his Mini Cooper (talk about a tight fit!) and off he drove. I am now, for the first time in 45 years completely without a darkroom. Sad? Nope, I am now entering a exciting new photographic venture..Color J Well…digital to be more exact. I am now the student and not the teacher I have been to quite a few in the past. Excited..yes!

Only you can choose the path. I hope this will be a time of refreshment in the hobby / obsession we both share.

Now get out there and shoot!

Oh yea, how much do you want for the Yashica!?
