50°C is pretty hot for developing, I'm surprised it didn't bring out more grain. That's usually what happens when you change the temperature during development. Unless you kept it at 50°C for every step.

The small size of forum pics hides a lot of flaws. [Smile]

There is plenty of grain in larger versions and if you zoom in at all, the poor women are covered in tiny black splotches like they have some sort of skin disease.

Live and learn.

Well Steve that kind of thing reminds me of the Indian janitor in the movie "The Terminal" who would set things up so folk would go flying.. just for his entertainment [Big Grin] ..good movie..

Today it was painting...I had just finished replacing our old picket fence a few months ago, so it was now the "paint job". Yvonne always liked a white picket fence and as the old one was well and truly had it, it was time for a new one....she has now got her wish [Smile]

Please don't remind me!

This is kind of a rare ”My day in pictures” because I’m actually in the picture. For a guy who loves cameras, I’m a little bit of a hypocrite: I hate being in the picture!

 -

I’ve made it a rule of life to get a haircut the week of CineSea to avoid pictures like this: seems I’m due!

-but an opportunity popped up. A friend of mine texted me Sunday morning “Do you want to go canoeing this afternoon?”. Now, Sunday was not your prime canoeing day: it was gray and temperamental looking, just the kind of day to get a canoe trip and a cold shower all at once.

-but he got a brand new boat and was itching to try it out, and I’ve been kind of canoe-lazy these last few months. Besides, I finally got a set of roof racks for my car: wouldn’t even need to commandeer my wife’s minivan!

-Why not!

So even without any watts and wires running all over the place, this is me in my element (actually, water is a compound…but you get the idea!). It’s not fast, and it’s not loud, just peaceful and smooth: nothing to do if you’re in a hurry.

 -

Wondrous thing: Like this you can drive with your sunroof open in a pouring rain and not take on a single drop!

Bought my first "Pink Vinyl" record [Cool] last weekend, as its Henry Mancini 1963 soundtrack to "The Pink Panther". It was a must buy.. [Big Grin] ...the soundtrack is excellent "one of the best" I have heard.

Its well worth getting folks...

I botched my first attempt at developing B&W film in 35 years, but round 2 went better. These "Urban Art" pictures are from a couple of days ago. Going to try some color soon (good timing, leaves are changing) and eventually... Super 8.

The building where I work was originally a car barn for Minneapolis street cars. The first street cars were pulled by horses and mules. A cable system was going to be built but it never happened, as electric cars became more practical. The steam turbines used generate electricity needed water and what you're looking at in the first picture is a backwater from the Mississippi river. The tunnel in the 3rd picture (facing the opposite direction from the first) fed the water to my building a few blocks way.

Thanks. I'm pretty happy with them.

The nice thing about using archaic technology is that it can be had for a song. No one wants film cameras. The camera was $25 and the really nice 50mm f/1.4 lens I got for free with a broken camera that someone was giving away. Still trying to fix that camera.

Nice pictures. 'Archaic' technology? That word bothers me. How about 'alternative' technology?

Alternative is fine with me. [Wink]

FWIW, I didn't mean film so much as the camera and lenses. These were taken with a pre-auto focus Canon and an FD lens. Once Canon came out with their EOS line of cameras with EF lenses (still film at that point), suddenly all this fantastic glass was made obsolete, - and affordable to mere mortals.

The camera is a Canon T70 which has neither the look nor construction of a classic SLR. It also lacks the features of newer film SLRs. "Archaic" might be a bit harsh but I think "obsolete" is fair. At any rate, it works for me.

I do have an EOS film camera too. It's nice and light but it's got a so-so lens and good modern lenses are pricey.

They look good Tom [Smile] The crowd I am in with at the Historical Park are right into developing film from different formats, also with amazing results. Some of the cameras these guys are given from the past and because no one else is interested in them are really something. Pity you did not live closer you would be right in your element at that place [Smile]

Thanks Graham. I've been enjoying myself and could see moving on to other formats like 120mm but the equipment starts to get more expensive. The results would be fantastic though.

My teenagers have been enjoying it too so I can use the educational value as reason to spend a bit of money on chemicals and such. Not sure that it will be a long term hobby but I'm learning how to take better pictures in the process, - things that I can also apply in the digital world.

That's a really interesting house.

What's the history of it? It looks like there is a story going on there.

Our house was built in 1956, we are the second owners, apparently the plumbing hates me...and it's mutual!

(-Not much of a story!)

Sunday, I visited an exhibition in Paris (at la Cinémathèque) called (I translate) From Mélies to 3D. As it took me some time to post the pictures (in another thread) of the private museum I visited on Saturday, I'm posting these pictures a little bit late.

 -

It is NOT 9.5 although there is a central perforation. It's 15 mm.

 -

This is the 15 mm machine.

 -

Early sound system.

 -

A scopitone machine, using 16 mm magnetic sound films.

 -

Talking about 16 mm sound, here is a magnetic camera.

9.5 is also there of course.

 -

The first Pathé Baby projector ever made.

 -

I wonder how many films from this poster have survived.
