Birthed in the high wilds of Montana, raised in the verdant inlets of Puget Sound,
found in the mirrored streets of Seattle, tested in the soft fields of Indiana
and now received into Chicago's broad, garrulous embrace.
Since I have had a little unexpected time on my hands of late, I have taken the opportunity to start developing my own black and white film. I had been keeping a bag of exposed 35mm and 120 rolls to experiment with and have gotten about half-way through the bag. I must say that doing my own developing has been a very rewarding experience. There is just something almost mystical about pulling the developed negatives out of the tank. Turns out to be a lot easier and cheaper than I had thought, (and quite a bit faster and easier than sending out, as well). This probably means you will be seeing a lot more black and white as the blog goes forward.
