we are getting bigger and bigger

This roll had a couple of problems: The first one was a mistake I made during shooting. I thought I had accidentally triggered the double exposure lock of the Isolette by pressing the shutter button without cocking the shutter. So I just advanced until the shutter lock disengaged. Well, when I developed the roll I realised that I managed to produce an accidental double exposure despite the double exposure lock. Sadly it was the best frame of the roll that I “ruined”. Although it still looks quite interesting it would have been a great picture if I hadn’t made that mistake. The second problem was with the development. For some reason I had quite a bit of bromide drag. I must have forgotten to agitate at the halfway point. I fixed the most obvious spots, but it definitely isn’t perfect.

I’m now done with my digital editing queue, but I still have quite a bit of film to come. There are quite a number of rolls from the beginning of the year that I can show you and I even have a number of rolls from Berlin to come that still need scanning and dust spotting. If only dust spotting wasn’t such a boring and monotonous chore!

All pictures taken with: Agfa Isolette II, Apotar 85mm f/4.5.
Tri-X stand-developed in Rodinal 1:100.

The sign says something like “We are getting bigger and bigger”. I love the irony of the tiny bike.

I quite like the tonality in this one.

Mannequin with a donkey’s head. I’m still annoyed about my mistake, although it still looks interesting.

      Yeah, it kinda works. It still would have been a good street picture though *sigh*. Well, you win some, you lose some. I’m still happy with that roll though.
