Tolsta from a peat track. [and a little grain]
'Wall of tins'; Homage to Toots by way of Fags, Mags and Bags

"Hold the sheet higher please" I wailed. The staff did too. And the shot was made. All part of my homage to Toots montage that will eventually find it way out of the darkroom - when I find a moment to go in that is.

Only the grain isn't there is it? Where is it? I used some awful 400 film too, stuff I'd stored away for such a purpose. I rated it at 800 and sloshed it in Rodinal shaking the tank like a banshee. I should by right be able to count the grain. But its a mere shadow of real grain. Its not even ex-grain.

Back to the drawing board I think
