    Re: The beginnings of yet another darkroom

    I would certainly vote for a larger space than cramming between the windows. I have a 5' sink, which squeezes in three 11x14 trays and a wash tray (restaurant busing bin with drainage holes drilled...

    Re: Portraits from 2022

    Chris, a very interesting idea. Not many choose to make portraits in which the setting has a metaphorical quality.

    I have had the 210 f/6.3 "Commercial" for decades. Copal 1. Lots of coverage for 4x5, plenty sharp for me. Coating my be single; I'm not sure. Purchased used c. 1980.

    Re: Do you get sentimental about your lenses?

    A bit off-topic, or, perhaps just format, since I have only owned three LF lenses, in this order: 75 6.8 Super-Angulon, 210 6.3 Komura, 135 5.6 Nikkor 7-blade. I sold the first when no longer needed,...
