    I was out shooting interesting things around the city, and I came across this wonderful house with a bunch of really kitchy statues all around its fence. I took some good pictures, but one of the rolls jammed in the camera 1/3rd of the way through. I decided to "sacrifice" that roll to Cafinol.

    I followed the sodium carbonate amount per standard, but wound up just using undrinkably strong folger's pre-ground straight out of the carafe. This brew resulted in waaaay too much fog. Having been as inspired by the "Kill Your Darlings" article as much as the Cafinol ones, I decided to just bleach the crap out of it, re develop it a bit in more Cafinol, and then dry and scan.

    I love it, but your attached scan is way too big to fit my 12" screen. Will you please resize it down a bit.
