Yes behind glass i can't tell the difference and I don't think anyone canů

Which would mean i did not really "agree."

because to say "I agree" implies a preference for wet prints and that
they would have a much higher quality.

And i don't really strongly feel that to be true.

I like the look of inkjets. And sometimes like it better than wet prints.

But I just have a nice darkroom. And i feel like i can just do more down
there. Crank out more better prints. 
And bigger. 
And wetter. 
And thicker
and with more silver

Gee i like how they dry kind of crooked.

Love the smell of a new pack of paper in the morning!
