The Blind Poet aka KiwiVagabond on Ipernity
this will give a wider perspective on my mainly analogue and sometimes digital love affair with all things photography. I am often months behind what I am really doing on Aminus3 and I must confess to falling off the daily wagon for some time in 2017. You may find some articles I have written on Ipernity (and they are old too)but you may find interesting. I am enjoying trying to get back into Animus3 this year after that getting off the daily image treadmill time, which one can end up with one posting meaningless images just because you are addicted and want to be in that image number bracket.

Looking very cool! What was the dilution of the HC-110 solution and the time you developed the film? I usually do my stand development with Rodinal or Rodinal clones.

@Hans ter Horst: Hey hans. I used Dil H I think for this. Same as Ansel Adams liked apparently. 1:119 I agitated for the 1st 30 seconds gently. Same again at 30 mins.........60 mins overall.
I tried it with Rodinal on an old film but ot what I think was bromide drag.......Rodinal was 1:100

Thanks for the info! I usually use a little borax in the development solution to avoid bromide drag when stand developing for longer than 1 hour.
