Wheel

by graysummers

Now! Here's a story of developing. Used the Pentax 645, Chinese Lucky film and have no neg housing or lens in my old Wetzler Leitz enlarger to accomodate a 120 size neg. I developed the film in ID11 with fingers crossed and timed from some blog suggestion on the internet. The negs were blitzed and fell apart into grain overload. The darkroom gave me a percentage of the whole neg after much faffing with framing and exposure times. And yet....some of my fave photographs exist on this one set of 120 negatives. This is a scan from a print on multigrade paper with a filter number which has long gone from my memory.

A nice B&W, it doesn't look like 'digital' processing.

Well worth the effort - nice story, it's a good thing you didn't give up. I really like this photo.

Note to self: Crank up the 645 and run off a couple of spools!
