    This is much better than my first exposure. I had an old Toyo View 4x5 with a 150mm Symmar-S. The Copal shutter had a preview lever, which I forgot to close after focusing. I remembered shortly after removing the darkslide before exposure. 4x5 mistakes are a lot cheaper than with than bigger cameras. Your first successful exposure cost one sheet less than mine.

    Shot at our Sat. morning outing in Trinity Park, in Ft. Worth, two weeks ago

    Nice going Rm. Keep up the good work.

    This proves that developing film is not "rocket science".

    The DFW large format group will return to Ft.Worth in the very near future.

    We'll keep you posted.

    For those of you in the DFW group that aren’t from Ft. Worth, the Amen Carter Museum has one of the largest collections of B&W photography in the country.

    If you haven’t already, you might make that a rainy day alternative to a foiled photo op outing. It is a stones throw from Trinity Park.

    Hi Jerome,

    FYI, a visit to the Amon Carter Museum, in Ft. Worth, is part of the DFW LF group's Saturday morning ritual.

    We usually finish shooting around 10AM and check the schedule to determine when they are hanging a new display of photographs.

    After viewing the photographs, we go to our favorite restaurant in Ft.Worth for brunch (Joe T's Tex-Mex).

    Hi Gem,
    I grew up in Fort Worth and still have family there. Good to hear that the Museum is already on your schedule.

    Where is Joe T's? I usually head for the Railhead (2900 Montgomery) for great BBQ ribs when I visit.
