Planned Solo Exhibition?

I am planning on applying for a solo show in the near future at my local community gallery.

The exhibit will be about my experience of Sunshine, in the last 18 years, we moved here in 2000. Initially when I thought of the idea I imagined I would have plenty of imagery. Well after 3 or 4 sessions printing, not so many it seems. This will impact on the timeline for when I exhibit and which dates will suit me.

Here are 18 prints chosen so far. By my calculation 20 to 25 would be a more desirable number. This means more shooting, not a bad thing, I’m just surprised at how few good images I have?

Vale darkroom tongs

Developer tongs finally die.
My Developer tongs finally died this week.

I have been using these tongs in my darkroom for such a long time. I can only hazard a guess and say I began using them at least 15 years ago, I built my darkroom in the garage around 2000-2001.

It’s funny how you put up with things. As soon as I grabbed a fresh pair my ability to work with wet prints in developer then improved immeasurably.

Still getting 15 plus years out of a piece of equipment is pretty good in this day and age of new hardware and software every 18 months.
