Of course I have not given up - photographing or anything else for that matter. Just been a bit more contemplative. Or something.
I found this snap on a film [foma 400 rated at 800] so developed it in dilute Firstcall Superfine - till it was 'done'. It worked I think.
I used to do more of this stand development but for some reason I seem to have left it behind so to speak. Maybe I'm too impatient these days.
I shall listen to this.
