Re: Chris at Blanco Negro - what a nice bloke!

Last time I e-mailed him to order some 8x10 film he responded by sending the film with an invoice before I had any chance to pay-brilliant bloke. I recommend him to everyone I can, please support him.

Re: More panoramic action.

4x10-most people cut 8x10 in half, dead easy. I believe Ilford with their once a year large format custom order will do fp4plus and hp5plus in 4x10. Not aware of anyone doing colour as a stock product, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: The Master himself in Sydney

I was totally blessed back in the early eighties in England to have a work colleague who knew Evans's grandson and I got to handle some original platinums of his, spent an hour going through a private collection, that was a truly special time, they were wonderful, all church work and with that somet...

Damn, I can't get down there for that. He's one of the few I go back to again and again, brilliant.

Re: Commercial Guy Still Using Film

Second you comments about the Queensland centre of photography-utterly hopeless.

Re: Strangler Fig
