So I've been reading Tim Rudman's Book and got some Arista Powder Lith AB and just had to give it a whirl. I read over the "how to" section of Tim's book several times, enough for a general idea to sink in but definitely not complete comprehension.
My first challenge was that I thought I had enough developer to make 1L when I actually had enough to make 1gal of each A and B. The largest container I had was 2L from our pop (soda) bottle collection (dang michigan deposits).

After being hurtled at high speed the D70 shatters upon impact with the cinder block wall. The sr-T101 makes a hole and keeps on goin'.

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.

After getting some McD's breakfast, gas, and a little miscommunication between me and my GPS, it turned into a 3hr drive.

On my way home one day I ran into a very pretty girl reading a newspaper. I approached her for a portrait. I don't recall my exact words but it went something like this, "Please don't think I'm a psycho but..." As I approach people on the street some of them look at me with this frightened look so I begin with that line. I'm building an arsenal of lines and reading people very quickly. I won't pretend I get them all right and some will always say no despite anything I say.
