“Oh this ain’t a Jelly Gun, Sunshine…..”


So it turns out I pretty much ruined the first roll of slide film;

Over-estimated the effect of age on sensitivity (it is probably newer than I thought…) and then over-developed to boot (105F instead of 100…)

Managed to salvage a few shots, but it isn’t pretty.

In any case, three possible points if you know:

  1. Which movie?
  2. Who said the quote?
  3. What the ACTUAL weapon was.

(Oh…and bonus points if you know IN DETAIL who the quote was said TO…)




I have appended a comparison scan from the Opticfilm 120 just to reassure the naysayers among you (I’m lookin’ at you, Ghantous…) that there is little detail left in the scan that the Noritsu is not picking up.  Yes, the WB is different and such, but it is not a scientific comparison.


Just a comparison.  That’s all.

More Visual Randomness

More visual randomness from my mechanically flawed (and now returned) Leica M2.

This is Kodak BW400CN processed in B&W chemistry…

Watch out for that phone…it will literally try to kill you.
