    *oriecat sings...*

    It's a bee-u-ti-ful morningggggg...
    I think I'll go in the dark for a print...
    and just smile!
    Just take in some clean chem-i-cals
    Ain't no sense in going outside
    when the fixer's fine
    and you've got the time....


    I'm excited!! There's so much more left to buy... 80mm lens, print washer and dryer, chems... argh. But I have to be good til the house closes. I have to be good til the house closes. I have to be good til the house closes.... repeat. remember.

    Manda, the enlarger is how you get a big sized print from a little sized negative. Negatives are small, so to get bigger pics you have to blow them up. The negative goes in the enlarger, then the light shines through it so the negative image shows up on the baseboard and it's bigger since it's shining from a distance (imagine like a mini slide projecter). I am sure Will or Matt can explain it better than me. But I think that gives you the idea... if that's even what you meant...

    Babe, when you come see me, I'll have my darkroom all set up and we can play all day long. I teach you everyting I know. Which ain't much, but it's a good start. :)
