    The Biogon lens is amazing. Lovely tonality there Tony, I will have to get myself some D76 too, I think, when I start home developing soon.

    Thanks for adding this to the Hasselblad Group!


  • thanks Brett, I’ve tried a few other developers with the Tmax and settled on playing with D76. There is a specific Tmax developer but it’s harder to get hold of in smaller quantities.

  • thanks artstudent123, the bamboo grove in the gardens has been graffitied for years, some of the tags I saw were from the 70s

    Interesting indeed… could be an installation piece almost.

  • thanks Matt, I suppose in some way it already is an installation peace although a lot more permanent than others. The grove of bamboo stretches for about 30 meters along a path in the gardens and people (mainly travelers) have been leaving their mark on the bamboo for years,
