we have to wait outside

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.

 

At the end of January we went to Bilbao to escape the noise of the celebrations of the day of San Sebastian. It was rainy, grey and dark, just as was to be expected in the middle of winter. We were staying in the Casco Viejo, the old part of town, and so our surroundings had a lot of narrow streets which were of course quite dark with the dreary winter weather. I used the opportunity to play around with pushing some ISO 400 film to 1600 in Tetenal Ultrafin. This involved agitation every minute for 36 minutes, which is obviously incredibly boring and monotonous. Although I have pushed some film to ISO 800 in Ultrafin since then I think 36 minutes for 1600 is just too much. Pushing in Rodinal stand-development is way more comfortable, since you only have to agitate every half hour, and the grain is also less pronounced. Nevertheless, I think the atmosphere of the results is still quite special.

All pictures taken with: Zorki 4K and Jupiter 12 35mm f/2.8 ASPH.
Kentmere 400 EI 1600 developed in Tetenal Ultrafin 1:20, 36min.

There was a market hall that was recommended to us by our landlords. Sure, the food looked good, but the hall itself had a very sterile atmosphere.

Our holiday flat was very nicely decorated. The old fashioned telephone obviously didn’t work.
