Perth, 1998

Pentax 35mm MX SLR
I took these while repeating year 12 at North Lake Senior Campus in WA. Hand printed using a colour enlarger. The school had this huge colour processing machine, must have cost a fortune. It was only a couple of years later that it would have all been digital...
I was just about to go into some boring old rant about the romance of hand printing colour, but it is hard to be whimsical about almost complete darkness, the chemical smell, the constant frustrating colour correcting, the sheer cost of everything etc.
