What is your favorite scent or smell and why?
Submitted by Nebraska Plates.
God help me but the smell of photographic fixer is one of my favorites. It brings back all the anticipation and eagerness of seeing a new image form on the paper – something that just doesn't happen with digital photography. Also, it reminds me of being in the photo labs in high school or college – the laughing and joking and cool shit that went on is something I really miss.
A strong second is the smell of chlorine in a swimming pool, for much the same reasons as above.
