  1. Re: "The Other City" exhibition by Thom Bennett

  2. Re: LF photogenic sites in San Francisco, Napa Valley, Muir Woods, Santa Cruz, Monter

    Then again you can avoid the whole affair by going northbound over the GG Bridge to Marin (no toll) and returning via the San Rafael Bridge. Doing it that way you will have to pay a toll on the Bay...

    Re: 8x10 film processing

    Yesterday morning I shot 2 sheets of 8x10 and decided to develop them that afternoon. With 2 or more sheets to process I have been using the 3005 but I decided to use the 2830 to see if filling the...

    Kodak C-41 developer will last 4 weeks in a tank with a floating lid or 6 weeks in a full stoppered glass bottle. So if it was in a partially-filled glass bottle it should be dead by the 4th week.
