Tomorrow, I'm selling off my enlarger and most of my darkroom goodies. No, I'm not going digital (HA! That'll be the day...). It's not the end, merely an intermission. I'm moving, you see, from Alabama back to Alaska, and I'm going to be traveling by car, so taking along a 4-foot enlarger column simply isn't practical--especially since I fully intend to begin working with MF and LF once I get settled in, and my trusty Omega A-6 is 35mm-only. On the plus side, I'm taking 53+ days of vacation along the way, so I'll have plenty of time to devote to some pinhole and paper-negative photography. After all, contact prints don't require an enlarger, just an even light source. I already have plans for my new "Dark Box." Charlie gave me the idea with his solar-powered contact printer. I'm gonna draw up some plans and take some pictures. All I need is a couple of boxes, some black cloth, and some rubber bands (I think). And a lamp. We shall see... we shall see indeed! Maybe it's a good thing to try some less-conventional stuff as a developmental exercise?
