There is a certain romance with the smells and then seeing things develop. I always enjoyed watching the paper in the developer tray and seeing the picture slowly appear. It was magic to this little girl's eyes and her dad was quite a magician to make it happen!

I'm sure the film Blow Up used to be a popular film for some of us photo buffs back then. It sure was for me....:D

Well it is for me, And I'm liking the fact it's making my digital shooting a heck of a lot better.

My mom has a Sony Mavica, If I'm thinking about the right one I will have to ask her later this evening. Oh yeah GrillingFool, They still make HC110 developer in the lap, Actually from what the teacher say's you still can buy it, but they make it in chem class.

Gee, that is an intersting hobby nowadays, when everything is done by machines. I got into photografy when everything was still done by hand and used develope all my film and prints. Had all the equipment. Actually kept it until right before leaving Soviet Union, by then I was doing a lot of coor and slides mostly, found that to be interesting. Those were fun days. Dark rooms, red lights, ehhh, oh yeah we are still talking about photografy. Good luck.

But of course, you can still have fun with digital photography. It's just a whole different aspect. You'll miss the film loading, both in the camera and the developing reel.....and all the nifty darkroom gear. Having your own darkroom earned cool bonus points too.
