It was almost exactly three years ago that I was buying a tetenal kit whilst wondering about the eventual possibility of getting wet prints... I just developed a roll of Portra tonight - photos I took in March in San Francisco, ffs, and also happened to have a quick google for public darkroom facilities in Glasgow. There's Street Level Photoworks. Fingers crossed, we'll be moved to Dennistoun and only a 20 minute walk from Trongate in a few weeks, and I can at last get away from the masturbatory not-quite-photography world of the internet, and just use digital media as a form of elaborate contact sheet. Proper prints, framed and on a wall. Bye-bye, pixels.
