I tried a new film and developer yesterday. Rollei RPX 400 film and R09 developer. I'm very, very happy with the results.

I popped down to Semaphore today to finish off a film. This was the film canister that popped open. So I was pretty lucky to have even this from it.

I'm not loving how my Epson scanner is handling less dense negatives. I might have to try it on the SLR scanner.

I bought a new calculator the other day. Nothing fancy - Casio fx-82AU Plus II. But it's about the size of my phone. So when it's on my desk it keeps grabbing my attention because it's a black rectangle that has stuff on it.

I should try to do something about my screen addiction.

Gah. Film canister came open when I got it out of the camera. I assume I've got a rooted film, but I'm developing it anyway.

I do like Devin refers to Strapping Young Lad as "almost unbearably heavy". It's true.

I found an enlarger on Gumtree that might be of use for me - printing 6x6 would be awesome. At this stage they're only going to digital.

I think I'm slowly getting my mojo back.

I've finally broken through whatever mental barrier I had in place when it came to developing film and printing photos.

These need to dry, then they're going out! :)

Here's an ancient SAAB. I think it's a 96 (not the year). Iteresting factoid - these came with a 2-stroke engine. Because 2-strokes don't work well coasting (engines don't need fuel when coasting, which means a 2-stroke isn't getting any lubrication) it also had a free-wheel which would allow the engine to be at idle while coasting.
