    Heya JamesD, you ARE on the list, you want to be MOTW once and answer all our questions to you and post all the pics we make you post :lol: ... and you were last seen on Friday --- can we lure you out of your darkroom, maybe? (This is the first question, and the answer to it is crucial for this week's MOTW-thread to run!!! :lmao: )

    Do you like trick questions?
    If you were to rule TPF for a day, what would you do?
    Best piece of equipment you own? (ehmm, that's not a trick question, really :lol:)
    Take a pic of your favourite bath toy
    Take a pic of your street

    Do you find that you are in an existential quandry on the third Friday of each month after February?

    Have you ever considered become a shopping cart lady and/or cat lady?

    Does the thought of a large salad with toasted almonds and sun dried tomatoes make your day complete?

    Discuss (in no more than 1,000 words) how answering existential questions in a public forum adds to the 'residents' knowledge of you as an individual and contrast that knowledge with the alter ego you present for public consumption as JamesD.







    Alternatively, post a photo of your television (or related AV device)

    Provide a set of dimensions for your darkroom

    You've not come out of hiding yet?
    Do you have a least favorite aspect of photography?
    What would a dream vacation for you involve?

    It bears repeating: ACK!!

    Totally unexpected, totally unprepared, and in the process of moving (again) but I'm game--I'll do my best!!

    Thanks for sending me the PM, LaFoto! I'd never have known, otherwise!

    Now... Let me ponder the questions put forth so far...

    Alas, no, I cannot be lured out of my darkroom.

    You see, I was until very recently in the US Army, stationed in Alabama. My darkroom was one of the 4X5 foot closets in my barracks. Since I've moved from Alabama, almost all of my darkroom equipment has been sold, because it was mostly outdated and very bulky--and therefore difficult to move! Plus, I knew I wasn't going to have a place to set up here.

    But! I'm in the process of moving back to lovely Fairbanks, Alaska! Once I get there and get settled, you'll have quite an adventure prying me from the dark, dingy confines of my stop-bath-smelling, light-manipulating laboratory! I might even be doing color work in there! And MF and LF negatives! WHOO!

    My favorite bit of photographic kit... That's easy!

    My EOS camera!
    No--my 50mm 1.4 prime!
    No--My Enlarger--rats, I sold it....
    Oh, wait, my Toyo view camera!
    Noo... It's got to be the bamboo tongs.

    Oh, wait, I've got it! My Argus Argoflex E TLR! I love that thing! It's so... so... well... I hate to use the evil four-letter C word, but, it's just so danged cute! I bought it on Ebay, and I don't use it much, but I did do a shutter rebuild on it, and took some pictures with it, and it's a great conversation piece!

    My favorite memory from school... hmm... school was a troubled time for me, but what stands out most is hanging out with my best friend from fourth through sixth grades, Pearl. I do miss her, she was a great friend, always there for me when I needed a break from the angst.

    Other than that, though, I'd have to say, the first day of summer vacation!
