I really, really struggled with developing a roll of 120 Kodak Tri-x this past weekend. I just couldn’t get the film to roll onto my developing spool.
I am not kidding when I say that I actually tried for two hours to get that film loaded onto the spool in the black bag. I was close to giving up thinking that all the man-handling of the film had to have ruined any chance of decent images. I even pulled one end of the film out of the hand holes to see if I was loading it elmulsion side down. That did ruin one end of the film. I thought it would be the leader end but unfortunately it was the very end of the film so a few images were exposed to light.
But…I did get a few images and one image that I really like. This one is a definite favorite. I love the old film look. It could have been sitting in a shoe box for the last fifty years.
Just a happy accident.
Thanks for reading.
