Disneyland - Redscale processed as B & W film in Caffenol

I accidentally processed redscale film as B & W film in caffenol. I’m surprised I got any images at all, but I did. The film is really hazy and grainy. I’ve scanned the film in both color and black and white. The color scans are a dark sepia. My scanner was clean but the pictures still look very dusty. I’ll have to rescan at some point. Oh, and to further add to the screw ups, I accidentally opened the camera in the middle of the roll. Duh…

    Now that I look more closely at this picture, it's actually in Disneyland. I finished the roll in Hawaii...comedy of errors here...

    well I just point and shoot, then when the roll is done, I make a caffenol brew (3 teaspoon washing soda, in 400ml water and five tea spoons instant coffee and half a teaspoon vitamin c) I shake the mixture fro about 1min, then let it sit for 2 min and then shanke every 30sec for about 15 min, let it rest for 2min and then wash it untill it seems clean... then I scan it and play around with the settings to get the right feel :)
