Finally making that first small step

I've been lurking on the list for some time, absorbing the information
as I can, archiving 90% of the posts for future reference. I hope to
do prints on POP with negs from my Speed Graphic eventually. In the
meantime, today I finally made my first baby step towards actually
doing what you folks do by mixing up 3 liters (in a US gallon jug) of
homemade fixer (just hypo and Sodium Sulfite, for stability, in
water). I realize this isn't anything too special, but it's nice to
make a start on getting to a place where my camera is not held hostage
to certain companies staying in business... :) Saving money in the
process (by buying 20 lbs. of hypo!) isn't a bad incentive either.
Fixer is cheap, but it can be even cheaper... :)

Thanks for the inspiration.


Live like you will never die, love like you've never been hurt, dance
like no-one is watching.
