Nothing beats free parking.

Fee Parking!
When I was young my Mom and Dad lived in Guttenberg, NJ. We had a house which was surrounded by factories. One on the left, one on the right and two enclosing the back yard. Our backyard was a brick inclosed patch of grass.  

My parents were immigrants so they were smart enough to appreciate what they had but knew better was possible with more hard work.

As an adult now I never got to ask my Dad how much of a hassle the parking was every day. It was street parking. Sometimes parked in the front, sometimes way down the street. Always a crapshoot and always a pain!

Eventually we moved to Florida and free parking is everywhere!

I messed up this roll before developing. I loaded the film in a changing bag like normal. I took the development tank out and immediately opened it for no reason. 

Flash! OH NO! Why did I do that !?! You messed up bigtime there buddy! Oh well. All part of the fun on film photography.

I went on and developed the roll. Aside from some ruined people photos I really liked it.

Simple solution for film reticulation

I was developing my favorite black and white film, Kodak Tri-X, and I noticed the grain looked weird. I must have screwed up somehow. Oh well that’s part of the fun of film. Then it happen again and again. Tri-X has such amazing grain and I was seeing these weird squiggles! WTH? 

I started getting frustrated and started doing some research online. Turns out what was happening is called film reticulation. This reticulation can happen by one of two reasons.
 1) Drastic temperature changes while developing. Or 2) Monobath developer.
I was using the Cinestill Monobath.
The solution I found was simple. I filled a bucket with water. Then put the monobath developer bottle floating inside the water. I’ll leave it in there til the temperature equalizes to room temperature. About 15 mins later the developer in the bottle and the water in the bucket are the same.

I develop using the monobath like normal but then use the water from inside the bucket to rinse. Since the water is at the same temp as the developer the film reticulation problem doesn’t happen!

I have mixed feeling on Cinestill 400D. I should shoot more of it. I've had an extra roll sitting waiting for me. I love the halation especially on 800T. I've seen people compare it to Portra but I’m not seeing it. Still a nice photo thou.
