Aw, that's a little bit sad and nostalgic, isn't it?
Yea, I'm in the mood to simplify so mostly it was okay. I kept getting caught up by little things though. Like the gray card. My copy of the Zone System Manual by Minor White with the binding almost worn through -- and suddenly I was 19 again.
Just found your blog. This post reminded me of working in the dark room in high school..
Glad to hear from you!
