More thoughts about darkroom

Somehow I miss the darkroom sessions. Setting up the enlarger, preparing the developer and fixer, doing test stripes until the result is pleasing, making a final fibrebased paper print, press it, mount it.
It takes time, seems thats the only thing you cant buy !Beside that I dont have the space for a darkroom currently. So I found back to film, but do the prints with large format printer with the scanned images.
At the end of the day, it is about pictures, not really the process how you produce it.

It reminds me of our favourite discussion with Ian and Alan about film vs. digital and if digital can reach the same level as film, not in terms of resolution, but the "feeling" thing.
