Sometimes I come down here to the darkroom before bed just to check on the prints. These are drying for the last time. Tonight, they got their second fixing to remove every last bit of unexposed silver. Then the went into the selenium toner to deepen their blacks and add just a special something to the dark tones. Black and white photographs actually have colors in them! After the toner came the hypo clear to open up the gelatin and the paper fibers so that any residual chemistry can leave during the wash.
