Hello alchemists.

Just a quick greeting as to who I am and why I'm here. My name is Robin and I'm a photoholic. It's been ten years since my last brew of developer but I've fallen off the wagon and am coming back to the heady fumes of hypo, stop bath and warm, undeveloped film.

Having recently discovered a silver case in the loft, with 35mm cameras and lenses (some without fungus!) unused for a decade, I've decided to reignite my passion. Unfortunately since my last dunk in Perceptol, time has moved on and so have I. Downsizing to a place with no room for a darkroom but... I have plans.

A quick surf reveals that a lot of things have changed and so I'm going to dip slowly into the pool. Hopefully with your help and advice.

Welcome back to our world of FADU, Rob Roy. The best I have found in my loft was an old Chinese Wok but no fried rice

Welcome to FADU, Perceptol still works just as good as it did 10 years ago.

Is that a cunning plan like Baldrick in the trenches?..........

Whatever you do welcome back to the band.

Errrr You may miss then gentle waft of fixer and stop bath because they have largely gone odourless although the full unleaded varieties are still available
