Default Hi from Oman

Hi All,
I have always had a camera from my childhood Box Brownie, dabbled in B&W developing many (many) years ago, and am more of a camera collector than photographer.
Originally from Australia, my wife and I are on a motorcycle trip through Arabia and Africa, and have been living and working in Oman for the past 3 years.
I recently took my NOS Seagull TLR to Ethiopia for some "atmospheric" shots, and now wish to re-skill my B&W developing. Looking to set up a simple facility for processing the negatives.
That's about my life story... Looks like a fascinating forum.
Regards, Dale

Hi Dale and welcome to Fadu, I am also a camera collector, mostly German, and my collection goes from a 1938 voightlander baby bessa to a 1961 rolleicord Va 2, and they all get used, I prefer them to ''Modern'' cameras,
Richard

Welcome Dale. The problem where you are must be how to keep the water temperature down for B&W film pocessing and not up as it is here in the U.K. now
