Default Hello from Chipperfield

My father introduced me to darkrooms many years ago and I enjoyed it for years. My first camera was a Rolleiflex twin lens which I remember paying 25 for second hand and I regret getting rid of it for the 'more modern' 35mm. Due to lack of time and space I stopped when I started working but 30 years later my daughter started GCSE photography and got me back into it. I bought an enlarger for 45 and found some of my other kit (including a perfectly good enlarger lens) hidden away in the loft and bought the rest of the the kit from RK who have been great. I bought my daughter a Canon 500N and gave her my 60D for digital. Good excuse to get myself a 90D. Enjoying the magic of the darkroom once again.

Welcome Mark. I cannot work out how long ago exactly it was when you bought the Rolleiflex Twin but it sounds like at least 30 years ago and probably longer when in fact 25 took a lot more out of a wallet than it does now

When I see photo mags from the 50s and 60s certainly and really much more recently I realise that from a consumer's wallet point of view that those were not "the golden decades"

Mike
