    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Timmyjoe, your image likely will be removed (moved) since it is not considered "large format"..Anything smaller than 4X5 is to be posted in the other image sharing section. Nice shot anyway.

    Not sure where to put this. My Dad passed away back in June - this is his hydraulic jack. I guess he acquired it back in the 50's or 60's. As far back as I can remember we used it to jack up the...

    Just bought a 2020 Subaru Forester - the darn engine stalled at a red light on the way home - turns out that is a "feature". At 62 I honestly don't need any more "features" in my life.

    I agree - read Ken Lee's website for mixing my own. I was very frustrated with how Rodinal treated my Ilford films - the grain was horrible. D-23 seems to have taken care of that.
