I was DRAGGED into this "computer world" of cyberspace by my daughters, but 
I am pleased to find so many KINDRID SPIRITS here.

Louis' photos of New York City were RIGHT ON. He has what we called in my 
day the ability to truely APPRECIATE a pretty woman. Today if you take a 
picture they're in your face with the "stalking harrassment" charges. It's 
depressing what a SLIME PIT New York has turned into lately, they cleaned up 
the filth on 42nd street, but the city has GONE TO HELL anyway. It's a 
shame. With a 35 sumicron and an M2, that city is your OYSTER every 
photographer should spend a YEAR there. Until some CRACK-HEAD accuses you of 
"stalking harrassment" for your photos. What do they know about art? 
(Retorical.) The cops will try and take your camera/film for photographing a 
church. I always carry a spare roll of (blank) exposed film that I'll switch 
and give them, "Here you go!"

If you want DEVELOPER, this is what you should be using, it's my own
