    Lovely capture, love the Ilford Delta 100

  • It’s sweet stuff…and so much fun to put it into a tank, get to play Mad Scientist for a while, and the transformation when you pull the dripping wet negs out and get your first look at them is wonderful…my own kind of alchemy, but with silver not gold!

    Thanks for the comment too. I took some pics of this on Fujichrome slide too, which I will have to scan up and load…it was a wonderful piece of machinery, and quite fun to ride behind too…it’s good to act like a kid sometimes! We had a busload of grownups all acting like kids at a fairground…it was wonderful!

    Nice shot, there seems to be as many minatures preserved as their big brothers.

    I learned about film with an old Zenith B, but I’ll stick with digital now

  • I love my film stuff!
    Thanks for the comment!
