      Well, not only did I not go digital with cameras. I am still using a wet darkroom! Spent 6 hours today in it. Kind of like it, radio blasting 60's music, although I was waiting for "Beatles" and "when I am 64", did not happen.
      For those who right now are trying to decode my marks on the negfiles.Very simple, E-226 just means that it is part of Vancouver shooting - started with V, but added A/B/C/D over the years. Stuff shot outside of Vancouver/US starts from the other end of the alphabet. Very simple; date (month/year) and occasionally film type.
      At the bottom (on 6 frames/7 rows you get a couple of inches of space) I write down developer/film type and asa if it is changed from normal as well as camera/lens combination. I rarely change lenses, just carry a couple of bodies instead. I edit from the file pages, black squares around what looks interesting and those occasionally gets printed or scanned.

      Many thanks for a explanation on the "Index" system of yours.
      I start early in photo (6 year old I remember), being both parents and the family business a Photo studio and lab, which close down last year after 43 years of hard work, to late to them to go on new digital routes....
      As many son's of Photographers you knew inside that the business was very difficult to maintain... cowardly I went to other routes professionally (IT, IT , IT...) still, after more than 20 years at IT at least allows me to keep shooting and buy some film (and Giga cards too).
      Now,if I ever come with an idea of wet darkroom.. I'll be living under a bridge on the next second!
      She has been very supportive on the last 28 years (she just bought me a R2 for my Nikkor LTM lens!!).. but that "dark thing" I know is out of limits.....

      Apologies for writing too much on your page.

      HAPPY 64!

      wow!! what a pile!
      I thought I shoot much because my ring-binder can´t hold this years neg´s anymore but you must go through a ring binder every one or two months! very impressive :-D
      happy birthday once again! I´d consider myself lucky if I ever reach 64, good work!!! :-))

      Hi
      Tom also shoots a lot to test Rapidwinders & various
      developers & new hardware.

      So he does not only take pictures for publications, write-ups, RFf or for own fun.
