I don't use this type of film very much. It is colour don't you know and I don't usually 'do' colour. Only I did when the leaves turned brown, the sun shone and I thought it prudent to fill the Bronnie with Fuji slide film I had.
Mr Toots sent it off to be developed for me and it came back to my possession the other day. I can't seem to get a decent scan though - even using the fine Vuescan software I have. Anyone got any ideas please?

Yes we had some snow. A little bit. Enough to cover the roads and the fields albeit briefly. I took some snaps of it like you do - the Minolta 505si came out to play so I didn't have to think too much - although when I needed to think to do plus 2 stops for the snow, I was blowed if I could remember what to press. I altered the iso instead and found the requisite button for the stops later.
The sun was shining this day, the day after the day after the other day. It often does that after snow and a bit of a blow like what we have encountered recently.

I snapped up the occasion with the Petri7s using old 400 film of some sort pushed to 1600 and developed in Foma Retro developer. Works too.

It wasn't always like this snap I took the day before the other day. Only I toned it without even going in the darkroom. The film development was done in the kitchen where it was less than freezing and the colour done on the pooter.
The effect, such as it is with this snap I took the day before the other day was straight off the film - old very-fogged HP5 @ 1600asa shot through a Jupiter12 lens.
It's those Russians again!
