Dear Apuggers,

Back in July we asked for your help and input into research and also a survey to see if we could 'make a difference' in the worldwide promotion of darkrooms and the teaching of analog photography and printing. Having studied the feedback we did indeed decide to make such an investment.

So it is with pleasure that we have today launched officially the Darkroom Locator Website.

We hope you will join, we hope you may have the opportunity to share and pass on your skills to others.

So our heartfelt thanks.

Excellent, Simon. As soon as I get over my terror of humans I'll reconsider opening up my home to people needing some dark space to play in :smile:

Dear Simon,

Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it not you British chaps who came up with a little idea called, "Bodyline"?
I know, I know, eighty years is a long time to hold a grudge, but really!

We're harmless by comparison...well, mostly harmless!

Eighty years is not long to hold a grudge....!

Anyway this came shortly after my Australian distributors video Christmas Card showing you lot BBQ on the beach, drinking ice cold beer and generally just having far too good a time...and then winning the cricket, also the wind and rain is lashing at my office window and its about 15th second at f5.6 outside ( my party trick, I am a walking light meter...never get it wrong by more than a stop, based on ISO 125 ) my old Dad always said anywhere that only cost £ 10.00 to get to was'nt worth going to.......( other readers please google £ 10.00 Pom's ).

Another way of looking at it...if you live in a 'kind of' paradise..is just keep your head down and enjoy, and don't forget its your own fault you have so many English teenage backbackers, you exported Neighbours and Home and Away on the TV ( I used to watch Skippy, shows my age and I hated it ) during their formative years when they came home from school and put the box on, and planted those exotic lifesytle and good weather seeds.

Rant Over !

The tragedy is, Skippy is back on the television and your recollections are correct, it's rather appalling. However, if Neighbours and Home and Away are the draw cards then I can only commend the lot of you to Broadmoor!

By the way, it's currently five hours at f5.6 here, allowing for reciprocity failure :tongue:

Your Australian distributors video might be considered cruel to some, I suppose, but honestly, we just like to share. It's generosity, not a bucket of salt in the wounds that we send these things to you (again, Neighbours and Home and Away are the exceptions).

Dear Molli,

I know its your generosity......but as always I assuage my feelings of deep envy by the following :

1 ) Nobody has ever been eaten by a shark the size of a family car whilst swimming off Brighton Beach.

2 ) Nobody in England has ever had their house eaten by insects...

3 ) If you are mowing your lawn in England and you hit a stick, its a stick...when in Australia it is probably a snake that can kill you just with a stare.....

4 ) If you are Kayakking ( not that I ever would, but if you were ) on the upper reaches of the Thames on a balmy day in June and you see a log float past...its a log.. not a 15 foot long salt water crocodile that is eyeing up lunch.

5 ) And finally, when I was young, I was sent off to Boy Scout Camp 7 miles from where I lived, in a park and it was truly an adventure, I was happy, I knew nothing else, how the heck do you lot get a buzz after spending time in the Blue mountains or in the outback, what badges do your scouts get? 'The I went camping for two days and nothing Bit me / Stung me / Ate Me / delete as appropriate Badge'

With Compliments of the season

No, we give out the "I went camping for two days and the land has made a man of me" badge.

We're a practical and economical bunch - we give the very same badge out to the Girl Guides.

Just registered Manu Propria Photographic Studio here in Charlottesville Virginia. Starting a new year with classes and workshops in an old industrial building in the historic downtown area. We also have gallery space for anyone who would like to show there work. We are the home of the Look3 Festival of the Photo held in June. Although they won't be having a festival in 2014, there is plenty of time to plan something with us for June of 2015.

(By the way, I'm now feeling tremendously guilty. Is there something I can send you to share my good fortune this Christmas? Some sunshine in a bottle perhaps? Although you probably already have some Potassium Ferricyanide there and that's the same thing, right? Um, I could try and incapacitate a cricketer for you but I'm thinking I may be sadly lacking in the muscle and violence department.

I know, I"ll clean out the fireplace and send you some Ashes!

Merry Christmas!)

If I miss one more year I think Nick is going to come out and fog all my film, I'll see you all there in 2015.

I'll take a bottle or two of that lovely Ginger Beer with the little yellow cap, forgot the darn name, drank a ton of it when I was living in Brizzy...

Registered, but how do you place a marker... tried to drag it, didn't work.

It is sort of backasswards...The marker stays in one place and you drag the map around the right spot is under the marker.

I have registered my future dimroom -- now I have to get busy and complete it!
