Update: radio interview, dark room, etc

– We are all OK. Weather changing every day.

– Radio Orkney came out yesterday and interviewed Debbie (my wife) and some of the others involved in the Sorting Room that launches in 3 weeks. Debbie was also in the paper this morning from an interview with the newspaper folk regarding starting up her pottery business. What a CELEBRITY!!

– Someone donated their dark room equipment to us – all in perfectly preserved condition from the 70’s. We had just cleaned out one of the old toilet blocks to make room for the dark room that I will be using to develop my medium format film.

– Opening day is 22nd of May. Special events all weekend. Good time to come and visit.

– Debbie’s brother-in-law Eric from New York and his wife Jenny are coming to visit next week.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Awesome news on the dark room. I have a beloved Canon AE1 w/ lenses I would love to donate to a good home, and since so few are really using film anymore it’s harder and harder to find someone who would love it as much as I did. (it was a graduation present from my parents) – I still have all the original boxes and it’s been well cared for – so if anyone in your community is really getting into film photography I would be happy to send it to you.
