So sometimes things don’t work out. Ideas sound better in your head than what actually happens to them in practicality. So my attempt to find a decent printer in Calangut close to the center failed and we will have to be at the mercy of Suraj.com in Panjim for a while more till a really good printer in a shining armor shows up.
The prints made at the local printer could not produce dense enough blacks in the negative and the final prints ended up loosing all the contrast as expected.
But as Thomas Edison would have said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
