In the process of boxing up my photography library, I did cull more books out, but still ended up with 29 boxes (10x15x12 inches) to have the movers load. Since I plan on never moving again, I am happy with that. Packing up the many photographs has been fairly easy. Most of my unframed work is in clam-shell boxes, and the framed work is well-boxed. I sure have a lot of binders filled with negatives, and after we arrive, I plan on going through the last 10 years worth and doing some printing as well as posting online. I boxed up much of the RC and fiber-based printing paper that was in my darkroom -- it will get used down the road, and I am sure some of it will be given away when I am in NC. My film fridge will get emptied the day before we move, and the film put into a cooler that I'll transport. Most of my cameras are already in locked plastic totes that will be handled by the movers. I'll be driving down with a couple of camera bags, as well.
Overall, things have gone smoothly. We have a buyer for our Ann Arbor home, and we close on the NC home on July 17. The next post you see will probably be from our new abode.
