I really like it, Michael P. Grain elevator?

Wow... finally got through all 154 pages of this über-thread!

Gandolfi.. var forberedt for ein PM med spørsmål om hjelp med å fa tak i kjemi osv her i skandinavia!

Printed at a little under 8x10 on Fomatone MG warmtone paper this was a test print before doing the final "big" 28x36cm print
