    Bluedog, the first of the two IR shots looks great.

    Still had no time yet to drive to Vanbar to have my 4 rolls of Velvia developed. I hate it that they moved to Fitzroy... Might also ask them what they charge for scanning as I don't have a scanner.

    Marc, Zhen and I saw two Lyrebirds as well. One between Amphitheatre falls and car park and one on the way to the Ada tree (which at the end we did not visit because it started to get dark; it's a 25km drive one way from the street on dirt roads).

    It seems to take many people longer to get to Vanbar now. I am appalled at the effort required to get now, for now commonly "we don't have that at the moment" or for a greatly inflated price! Even on a mountain bike, from North Melbourne (typically I stop there to drop-in/collect processing etc.) it is a very adventurous ride down one-way streets like leafy green Moore Street (bikes are allowed down one way streets). And the further I am riding the more agitated by the whole experience I am: the traffic everywhere in Melbourne is appalling, Grattan Street and Smith Street being the standouts.

    This pains me GREATLY to say, but perhaps Michael's is an option? Now that I don't live near Prism, this is my quickest E6 option. And they're not quite as Ned Kelly with their E6 prices as everything else in that overpriced cesspit…

    As for Prism, they did E6 on Tuesdays and Thursday, and did a pretty good job of it. YMMV.

    Dunno about "overpriced": they did surprisingly better pricing Velvia than Vanbar. And better eye-candy behind the counter to boot.
    My understanding of the status of film processing, asking at Michaels, is that E6 take-up is rising. I would not know if it is local or across Melbourne, but is an interesting point.

    Efke IR820 with IR720 filter.
    There are some small specs visible in the emulsion on some frames. Reading other posts on the subject points to this being fairly common and resulting from poor QA at Efke.
    Just finished the Velvia roll today so will drop it in to Vanbars tomorrow.

    Very interesting ideed. I have a roll of Efke Aura 820 and an IR720 filter waiting in the wings. SMBooth has obtained excellent results with SFX200 and an IR720.

    Good group shot!
    Have my 8x10 contact prints all done. I am happy with them.
    The overcast conditions and no wind were magic for my gear(Kodak 2D). Well done everyone!
