I love the smell of Hypo in the morning - to paraphrase Captain Kilgore of "Apocalypse Now" I have been a photographer for most of my life, nearly 45 years now. I am thankful I had the experience to work with film in a darkroom. My first dark room experience was under a bunk aboard ship in the Mediterranean Sea when I was in the Marine Corps. Fingernail turned dark by Dektol and that smell that darkroom smells like photography. Now it is different and I love it working digitally and using photoshop. I can make a better print now - better than I ever could back then.
