Entertaining as always Bob. Your variety of cameras and films is amazing and a joy to see the many and various exposures. You are very lucky to live close to so many fabulous photo opportunity locations. Bobj 20.4 and 20.9 are my picks of the latest bunch and hopefully it won't be too long before we can think about more DMs and I can book a trip back to London )

You have mentioned recently "stand developing". There I was just getting comfortable with my Patterson tank and I am discovering other ways to do it! I have just been viewing a YouTube video from Bellamy Hunt (JapanCameraHunter) who developed colour C41 film in a LabBox. It seems like an interesting bit of kit, doing away with the need for darkrooms and dark bags.

The labbox does look good, but the price is in nose-bleed territory for me..

Stand developing is very straightforward - although these shots were done with conventional agitation. I tend to use stand development on small negatives and for c41 films. You just make up weak developer and stick the film in it without any agitation (just tap the tank to dislodge any bubbles). The weak developer is supposed to give reasonably fine grain, while the lack of agitation stops the film over-developing while allowing dark bits to show some detail. It is suggested that you can expose one film at different ISO values and the stand development is supposed to even out the exposures (I've not experimented with that).

The unnerving thing is putting developer in the tank (I've been using R09 at 1:50 dilution) and not touching the tank for well over an hour..

Without having to go through all 27 pages, I looked at the original post but it seems this has rolled over into 2021 as well ?

I finally got the roll of Kodak Ektachrome E100 (36exp) developed. Lab couldn't cope with scanning (overexposed). So what I show I scanned the Plustek 7600i myself.
The camera is a Minolta 9 and the lenses are Minolta 28-70G and 70-210/4.0
All photos are from last winter (December and January).
First, a couple of trips to New York.

#1 Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.


#2 Iron seiling ship - Wavertree.


#3 Industry Kitchen - restaurant.


#4 The Immigrants


#5 Battery Park
