As always, if you have questions, objections, worries or praise, and especially if you found your picture and want it removed, feel free to contact me. I will get back to you as soon as possible. You can also read my full disclaimer, if you are interested.

 

I get the overwhelming feeling that the days just don’t have enough hours. I have so much developing and scanning to do, need to read, do my homework for language school and a million other things. And every day there is something that just doesn’t get done in the end. In the next few days I’m afraid that it will have to be photography related stuff that doesn’t get done, because I actually set myself a work related deadline for Friday.

Today I actually developed some film and edited some pictures though, so it was something else that got left behind. Ah, if only I had my Pakon already to speed up scanning! At the moment it’s at customs though, so it might still take a while until I get it. The rolls I developed today were a couple of C41 BW films that I pushed before knowing that they don’t push so well in BW chemicals. I think I’ve reached the bearable limit of my C41 kit now with 20 minutes Blix time and will mix a new batch soon to process some actual colour rolls that I shot during my last trip. I also started my 100ft roll of Double-X today, but this was only in anticipation of next week, because I’ve decided not to shoot this week unless it’s sunny. I just need to catch up on my BW and C41 processing and don’t want to shoot any more right now. So, in the end only the 120 E6 film would be an option this week and that’s ISO 100 and 200 film. With the weather forecast predicting dismal weather, it’s very unlikely that I get to shoot anything at all this week.

By the way, did I mention that I’m tired from getting up so early?

This picture cracks me up! The shadow really looks as if a gigantic insect is about to eat the cow. And keep in mind that the cow is actually on wheels!

Making adjustments …! And of course I like the dog.

Seriously, I don’t have any idea what’s going on with the door in the wall where the building used to be … huh?! So strange …
