Darkroom Darkness

Close the door and darkness, darkness darker than Stygian darkness. Blacker than Eli Jenkins Bible, blacker than the resting place of Chthulu. Black as the black of Agfa Record Rapid developed in Amidol (pray excuse my tears for this loss, which old photographers will understand). As black as Charbonnel Etching Ink (something I still have, and lots of copper plates and room for a new etching press). Black as the mind of Murdoch. A fine resonant black, that is until the coloured swirls of the eyelid moves start, a resonance from a not misspent enough youth

BlackAnd for doubters, not a single thread of gaffer’s tape to make it black

Only cloud is that I have discovered plastering and cornice cementing to be the stuff of divorce
