    Lovely! You make me reminisce about my B&W film heydays.

    Be sure to visit Mora Stylos during your visit.

    You're welcome. Yes, the darkroom is. There's nothing like watching the image gradually appear on the paper in the developer.

    Thank you. As time allows, I might check out their paper (done buying pens).

    One of my favorite places: Melodie Graphiques.

    Glad you're still around, Bob! I remember visiting your blog several years ago ( I think you were on Rangefinders Forum at the time?) and got quite hooked reading about your dog, Lucky, and all the adventures you both got into. When it (your blog) hadn't been updated in a long while, I feared the worst. Still shooting with your Leicas? I still have my old M3, M6ttl and a couple of Mandler lenses left.

    All the Best.

    Thank you for your kind thoughts, junglejim. Good to hear from you.

    Lucky's heart, God rest him, finally wore out a year ago in June. After I sent him across the rainbow bridge I took a long break.

    For the sake of my eyes (screen vision syndrome on top of light sensitivity from blood pressure med), I spend most of my time in the analog world, making photos on Tri-X with an M6TTL and an M7, writing letters and notes with my fountain pens, and taking care of Manny, a rescue dog I adopted earlier this year.

    Best,

    Bob

    Color is nice, but for me B&W rules. Wonderful work.

    Thank you Bob, I really enjoyed looking through them all. I had forgotten how good images in black and white could be.
