Russian Truck, Tver Russia. 2013
Last night I was developing my own black and white film again. I finished a roll to try out the new Leica M2 film camera and I had a second undeveloped roll of film in the fridge from last year. Both rolls were ISO 100@200 film so I decided to post them together in the same 2 reel Paterson tank. Last time I had 2 reel in the tank I didn't put in enough chemicals in so the upper reel film only developed about 2/3 of the depth of each negative (where covered by chemicals). It was a good lesson learnt so this time I filled the tank to the top. The new negatives are currently hanging over the bath drying. Here is a shot from last time I did 2 reels showing the problem. (For more examples search 'Russia' on my stream)

Voigtlander Bessa R3A + Voigtlander Color Skopar 21mm f4
Kodak T-Max 100 film
Stand developed in Xtol 3:1 & Rodinal, 19min, 20 degrees.

Photo taken without a 21mm viewfinder so I guessed the composition. I was only about 1m away but it looks much further
