My scanner comes tomorrow. No more blog entries that are just walls of text.
But more importantly, my film squeegee comes tomorrow as well. Despite using a bit of PhotoFlo at the end of the development process, I get spots and streaks on my negatives. I think rewetting the negatives, using just a drop of PhotoFlo, and then the squeegee will take care of them. At least, that’s the plan. I’ll report back on that.
But now I have the issue of having three 32oz bottles of chemicals that are starting to get tired. They’ll be good for another 3-6 rolls, but after, that, I really hate to dispose of them improperly. A few people have looked at me sheepishly and suggested I just dump them down the drain, but that seems like a terrible thing to do, especially here, by the shores of Lake Superior, and some of the most pristine freshwater on the planet. If anyone has any ideas, I’m all ears.
A final note: my Spinner 360 is enjoying the really cold weather exactly zero percent. I’m working an overnight festival on Wednesday night, and I’m going to have to devise a way to keep it warm enough to use. There must be a way to get it to stay in my internal jacket pocket…
