2016 will for me be remembered as the year my eyes were opened to black and white photography again.
Over 30 years had passed since processing my last roll of film in the University of Iowa dark room as a photojournalism major.
Though I considered it many times in those years, I put off developing my film for a multitude of what now seem lame reasons. Finally early this year I placed the order for supplies. A few short days later the large, brown box arrived full of goodies. The smell of developer, stop bath and fixer filled the studio again and it was good.
Since that first roll any hesitation has long since vanished and many more rolls of have been developed.
