The joy of prints

It's years since I had prints made of any of my photos.Once I used to print my own black and white photos in my darkroom.I even made beautiful Cibachrome prints in my darkroom but those days are long gone .
I had a spell at making prints with an inkjet printer about 10 years ago but the costs of the ink cartridges was way too much.
Now I have been printing my pictures in photobooks-usually from Blurb sometimes from Snapfish.They are a pretty effective way of displaying  photos but the quality is never the same as real silver prints.Otherwise my photos are up on my computer and my blog which gives them a lot of visibility but it does not show them at their best.
Last week Snapfish here in Australia had a discount offer and I had 19 biggish (20x30cm) glossy prints made of some recent photos.They are printed photographically on Fuji photo paper and they are superb.They have made me realise what I have been missing.It's a completely different ball game.Next time I'll try an even bigger size.
