Duplicity

It's Streetphoto Salon day once more, today's theme: Duplicity.

Scanning the last round of negatives, I can see that the heavy filtration has worked, but only to a degree. On a couple of rolls the dirt is almost eliminated, but there are still occasional cabbage-shaped patches that look like hard water stains. Maybe not enough wetting agent on the final rinse?

Very busy these past few days — still almost a dozen rolls in the "unprocessed, pending" box.

I also started developing B&W film at home recently. I got over the "cabbage patch" water stain problem by wiping the negative two times after shaking with a very fine, soft sponge I bought in a photography store in Bangkok. This leaves a fine film of drops that quickly dry leaving no stains unlike the larger drops I used to have that dried to stains that often could not be wiped off later. I still haven't used the
wetting agent I bought.
