Jul 9: Latent

“I want to do the formals at the next wedding with the Rolleicord” I said. Linda was horrified. It seems that she doesn't trust my old cameras. Well I do, and just to make the point, today’s picture will appear once I develop the film next week.

(A latent image is formed be exposing film to light. It needs developing and fixing before it becomes visible and stable)

Rolleicord Vb ,Ilford FP4 Plus
1/125 f11. to be developed in Rodinal... watch this space full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I hope this isn't catching! ;-)

I didn't make it clear, I was talking about my own attempts at D & P many years ago.
The latent image has developed further since I looked yesterday. I'm amazed Linda let you take it.

seductive bananas and parrafin heaters . . I don't think I can handle this kind of latency

Fix it! Before it destabilizes pbase!

Blacking out the bathroom window, measuring out developer and fixer, trying to adjust the temperature with a paraffin heater whilst trying to shield light from said paraffin heater, setting jumper on fire by leaning too close to the aforementioned. I loved it, I must be as daft as you!
But!! never again.

Thanks for explaining a LATENT image

A BLATANT image would be perhaps...a girl eating a banana and looking seductive? LOL!!
