8:30 AM to 9:30 PM just ISN'T ENOUGH TIME for dark room work, so since the school has to close..i brought home some photo flow to try and fix my spotted negatives problem (unfortunately it remains spotted). thank heavens spot fixing after the print is complete is an option (actually the world lied) apparently for the type of paper EVERYONE is using, they have discontinued the only type of spot fixer that works..everything else just turns the print blue.. I'm thinking of trying India ink. any suggestions?

here are some of the digital versions on the same photo shoot as the negatives above.
dark room prints coming soon!! (due soon so you'll see them all finished and ready for your eyes just as soon)

foggy feels like home

tonight is a very foggy night and i never really realized how much i love it. when i cant see the massive CN Tower out my window, when i can't even see the buildings that surround it, when i can't even see the helicopters, airplanes, spotlights on the sky. when i can hardly even see queen street from my balcony.
i am pleased and at makes the city look so much a comfortable small town.
almost like Home.

The other day on the subway i found a newspaper on the seat next to me, at this point i promptly went to the crossword and Sudoku page. only to be surprised with this, my favorite thing in the world! i love finding notes

over the years i have found quite a few and have acquired somewhat of a collection from all parts of the world i have traveled to. here are a few of my favorites:
