    ADM, I don't mind considering these in the future, but it's not very helpful to have no technical information on the products, even dilution. If I spend $20 on 1 liter of developer, I would like to...

    Very fine, Chris. The open shadows convey the atmosphere well. I spent my earliest years in Stockbridge in the 1950s; this reminds me of that time. (Except for the air-conditioners.)
