    my first darkroom experience... took me ages and lots of messing up, but I'm getting better, or at least I don't mess up as much. Lots of photographic paper wasted, but still, I enjoy it a lot. I'll post some more later... this is my sister and my neighbor, a 96 years old lady who was diagnosed with leuchemia a few weeks ago​

    I love this! And that's pretty impressive for a first print. Do you develop film yourself as well?

    Not only is this a wonderful motif for photography and an endearing scene you captured here, but - maybe after many errors, but those we don't see ;) - you also produced a wonderful print!

    Congratulations on your first darkroom results!!!

    I don't know much about film, but the photo itself is beautiful.

    This is a lovely image. It makes me think about youth and old age, and about the things that change and the things that don't. Well done!

    very nice work, excellent emotion communicated through the image and good results from persistence in the darkroom.
