The Darkest Room

Darkroom Gear
Today I went over a friend's photo studio and picked up a bunch of darkroom gear that he traded me for some work. I could tell he hated to let it go but was happy it would go to a home were it would get some use - he hadn't used the stuff in a long time.
I can't wait to get everything set up and try my hand at developing my own negatives and making my own prints/enlargements. I haven't done my own developing in probably 10 years. The stuff he gave me is really nice stuff - the Beseler 23C II enlarger is a classic. I have a couple other photography projects to finish up before I can really get to work on setting this stuff up properly but I'm really, really excited about getting back in the darkroom...

Timers - the front one is for the enalarger and making prints and the one in the back is for developing negatives.
