Back Into My Colour Darkroom - Surprise!

I finally got back into my colour darkroom today. Well, not really back in, as this is the first time I've done any colour work in my current darkroom. So, this is now my fourth colour darkroom. Today was my first time using Tetenal chemistry. I processed two rolls of Agfa RSXII 100. The first one was unmarked, and I had assumed that the subject was some night shots here in Melbourne from about six months ago. So imagine my delight when not only did the first roll look fine, but the subject is actually my now three-and-a-half year old son when he was only a few days old. The second one was marked, so I knew what to expect, my now almost two year old son when he was 11 days old. The Tetenal E6 kit was fine to use, my only complaint being the requirement to agitate every 15 seconds. And the Paterson Auto Colortherm is still going strong having now processed 228 rolls of film.
