Oh, yes done that (but not to day) when printing passport photos. I left them to one side to see how they changed while the inks ran. It got quite interesting at one point and I wish I had taken a picture of them at the time because when it progressed it was not nearly so impressive.
Daftest thing I've done today? Probably getting out of bed!
Making mashed potato and dusted it with drinking chocolate instead of Pepper ! I am off back to bed.
LOL nice , maybe even tasty,,,,,,,,,
Was a bit late getting up today...in the kitchen...put milk in glass...put orange juice in cup which already had coffee in it....
Quote: THE PAPER is the wrong way up
Done that with darkroom printing a few times
a) on the easel.... not realising untill developed and wasted the chemicals.
b) rolled the paper up the wrong way to put into the Jobo drum.... again wasted chemicals and as well, of course, the paper
Not done anything daft yet today.... BUT there is still just under 10 hours to go ! !
yes and im DREADING them lol....... but so far lunch is doing "ok".....phew....
Got up early 07:00 (It's early for me ) to go out to take some sunrise snow pics.
Took a dozen before realizing I wasn't on auto focus, DOH! So had to start over gain, but the sun was too high and the effect was lost.
Maybe tomorrow, maybe?
Re printing: I keep plain paper in the cassette on my printer and have lost count of the number of times I've printed photos on plain insted of photo paper!

hmm im ok on that score i have to select the bottom try or everything prints to the top. hence 5x7 in the bottom and a4 at the top
got up early today and headed north to loch Lomond (2 hour drive)
set up the tripod, went to set up the camera and at that point i remembered it
was still on the kitchen table at home !doh!
ARGH!!!!!! now that definatly tops my daft day
Trying to talk to my husband on Skype but forgetting to turn the speaker on. It was a bit of a one-sided affair for a few puzzling minutes.
If you're like most wives I dare say he wouldn't have noticed any difference.
