Enlarging is Thrilling!

I found this booklet for an old photo enlarger when I was rummaging in my grandmother's basement. How cool is this?

Can I fly you here with that thing and trace a photo of Jinx or my butt on my living room wall?

You rock in like so many ways with these cool pastimes and whatnot...

Say! What a great hobby! I used to think taking photos was fun, but enlarging is much more fun!

Too funny.

Such a provocative title. Not what I thought it would be about but it did provoke some degree of nostalgia. My father use to shoot photos and develop them himself. Not sure if he was into enlarging or not.

That is so crazy cool! I collect old stuff like that, so I really enjoyed looking at all the pages. :-)

I have one little booklet called entertaining with cheese (from the 50s).

That was perfectly creepy. Especially the demon-girl reading Mother Goose. What was her purpose again?

Reminds me of highschool photography class. We had enlargers like that. Developing your own photos is fun!!!!

Oh, my.

"One of the boys and I would like to get in here and do a little enlarging." WTF?

That rocks in so many ways!
