The apartment is only 650 square feet, and yes it is only a one bedroom.
I keep all my cameras at hand because I use them. Also know that I print and also have an Epson 7800 and Epson 3880 as my small printer with an 27 inch Eizo at hand.
The only photographic equipment I have in public storage is a complete wet darkroom, a few Domke bags of unused gear, and a bunch of empty Leica boxes.
At 59 1/2 I'm thinking about quitting the day job and really doing only what I want to do, and part of that is having a darkroom, wet printing, and pretty much dealing with all these negatives I created previously without any regard to printing. In my case time will be a great editor, know for mucho time all I concentrated on was image capture when film was inexpensive, and I could afford to shoot on average 150 rolls a month for 7-8 months and process 150 rolls a month in my kitchen.
Crazy is good I say.
POSTSCRIPT: I failed to mention that my gal and I decided to seriously downsize as a way to move towards retirement. That is how we justified moving into Madhattan. Previously we were just Hill Billies from Brooklyn and Queens. LOL. As we age we accumulated so much stuff we no longer needed that we were just saving. I discovered all these cloths I saved to wear work ing on cars and trucks that did not make sense anymore because I don't own a car. I saved stuff that I found that might be usefull if I had a farm in Vermont, but that dream today is unlikely. I was once blamed for single handedly down sizing a major aerospace company because I had all these military aircraft parts and hardware...
