Wish I could contribute to Paul's new thread, but I'm still stuck in the basement, and don't want to besmirch his fine work with my hack jobs.
Had a bad day yesterday, don't even want to show those, and today was not much better.
It rained and I waited for the rain to stop. It did at 2pm, so I thought this was my chance.

Would you believe these photos were taken 5 minutes apart? And I was wrong about exposure on both.
Did a short silver bath maintenance two days ago, made my dark box brighter, but nothing helped. At least the weather was ok, not too hot.
As I'm about 40 plates in, I had hoped to see a more linear progression by now. But no matter, going to keep at it.
