    Wow…one of my favorites I’ve seen from you Mark. Peter hit it on the head, timeless gets as close as I want to try to describe it.

    Did you have any luck finding more of the XX? I just finished the first roll of the XX, and spent a day getting all 400′ into cassettes…I hope to have some photos up at my site soon – don’t expect anything this good though!

    Thanks so much–I’m really glad I was just “taking pictures” here!

    I wasn’t expecting much, but knew I might have caught his sidelong glance. I was really excited about this one when I saw it. For a variety of reasons, it is surely one of my “Top Five” for the year.

    As for the Double-X; thanks for the great tip! I was browsing around the RFF links you sent me, and found an obscure reference to a Kodak PDF on one of the threads. I called the number, and was able to order a whole 400′ roll of fresh 5222! It arrived in two days, and was quite reasonably priced. I am LOVING the look of this stuff in Rodinal…Believe-it-or-not, I now think I actually may stop trying other films!

    Looking forward to some images from you…

    All the best,

    Glad I could be of some help! Good to know that calling Kodak works too, I don’t want to run out of this stuff…although that will probably take a long time as I now have over 50 rolls. Finally have some images up as well. Fair warning, please lower expectations before visiting my site!

      You are too modest! They are wonderful images of family life around the home–you will surely treasure them.

      I do like the look of the Double-X in the D76.

      Health and Happy shooting in your project!

      Best regards,

    Absolutely breathtaking. I keep coming back to this image because the gaze of your son pierces with such intensity yet innocence at the same time. Perfect subject isolation despite many potential subjects on the field. Stunning.
