Re: Success in the darkroom

John, Take heed of Barry, he is a master of Roll Your Own and works to a remarkable level level of craftsmanship and innovation. I once purchased a camera from him for which he'd fashioned bespoke lens boards for regular Copal shutters and flange mounted barrel lenses that were better than the origi...

Re: Which?

No apology needed at all John, That's exactly the sort of response I was hoping to elicit. I just know what works for me as a print for viewing,but the environment of the internet with lower resolution, different colour space aand transillumination rather than reflected illumination to say nothing o...

Re: En-deadened acacia

John,

Every outing, rushed or not, is a good outing because the path you've chosen to follow is multi-faceted and complex, and to master it you need to develop fluency so that it all becomes second nature. Every excuse to get out and hone your skills is a bonus.

Re: Wattles on Mt Ainslie

I wrote about these pics and by the time I hit 'SUBMIT' I had to sign in again. When I did the text had vanished. Bugger! At 2:30 it'll have to wait for another time.

In general I tend to find colour...

Re: Fiddler's Terraced Staircase

Thanks Maris. I'd strongly suggest that the steps were hewn long after the Brits had been forced to pay their own passage rather than sponging on the old Transportation drawcard. Of course there are convict cut steps around 'older' parts os Sydney and they are often almost insurmountable. In those d...

No matter how many millions Australian governments gave 'Old Yella' to prop them up there was never any stopping them shooting themselves in the foot, Maris.
