Building The Lighthouse

These images are of the darkroom in the very early stages of its construction, The equipment was arriving, walls needed to be build, the ceiling needed to be gyp rocked. it looked a huge task ahead. especially seeing I hardly knew the difference between a screwdriver and a hammer. At the time I was filled with photographic knowledge not building knowledge. I can happily say now that I've learned tons of handyman stuff :-) I'm also proud to say these images were taken on the first roll of film developed by our C-41 film processor.
