Light in the Darkroom

I love the smell of coffee in the morning, the smell of freshly baked bread, the smell of citrus, the smell of the ocean. Same as most of us, I guess.I also love the smell of fixer and whenever I get that pungent vinegarish pinch in my nose, I feel like I'm time-travelling back to my early days as a photographer, some twenty years ago, straight into the magic red room, the mysterious darkroom, a special place full of wonderful memories.      The feeling I get when I develop a... continue reading
