    Photo Friends

    I am the photo instructor for the City of Cape Coral Parks and Recreation
    Photography Programs - Last year I managed to open up a 5 station darkroom
    to teach the darkroom arts; Last Friday Hurricane Charley brought this
    to an end with our Arts builing severely damaged and the darkroom equipment
    ruined.

    Now, this is not as bad as some of the folks in our area who lost homes (
    mine kept its roof but lost soffet and facia, trees, and power damage - just
    getting back on line today) But this lab took two years of my efforts
    to build and was one of the more popular photo programs we have.

    I am asking for your help - Any donations of darkroom eqquipment -
    Enlargers, lenses, easels , tanks , trays reels, dryers etc, are
    desperateley needed to get our program going again. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX
    DEDUCTABLE! --
    and out director will supply you with an official receipt for the IRS


    THIS IS NOT A SCAM - CONTACT ME BY EMAIL AND I WILL PROVIDE ALL THE
    NECESSARRY INFO TO PROVE THIS IS A TRUE AND HONEST REQUEST -- YOU
    GENEROSITY TO THE CHILDREN AND ADULTS OF THESE PHOTO PROGRAMS IS GREATLY
    APPRECIATED - PLEASE HELP - FOR ANY FURTHER INFO PLEASE EMAIL ME
    DIRECTLY

    I'm afraid I have nothing for you but advice: Ebay.
    I know, it sounds crazy, but a woman recently bought my old Vivitar enlarger
    off of me on Ebay. It wasn't a great enlarger, but it was good all the
    same, and made fine, sharp 8x10's, and larger. She got it for $20 plus
    shipping. She told me she's a teacher looking to put together a dark room.
    I followed her ebay transactions for a while. She's bought 5 enlargers now,
    for no more than $20 a piece. If they all work as well as mine did, she's
    got a workable setup.
