Hey hey, slow shooter I am, we are mid April already, and I am just posting about this year’s second roll.
Actually I have my 3rd roll out of the lab now, the 4th is there and a 5th is on the way.
SO this is my last roll of HP5+ from the infamous bulk I bought in Singapore in 2021 before moving to the UK. I am not sure how many rolls that was in total but I think that was worth it.
HP5 made sense when I was doing Caffenol back then, as it is pretty friendly with this process, but I would say I am not the biggest fan, and unless I go back to shooting one roll a week as I did in Singapore, I may stick to the Kodak emulsions.
So this roll stayed in the M6 for a while. The first shot was probably taken in February, along Chalk farm on a long walk to Camden. Then subsequent pictures from another very long walk through Sloane street, Battersea Bridge, along the Thames,

and back to South Ken.
Yes there is an Heliport along the Thames for the not so climate conscious in haste to join the city.

These were 10+ km walks so the week after we probably just had a casual stroll to South Bank via Green Park (above).
Something different the next week end for a walk to Angel to see a show at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre (Excellent Copelia by Scottish Ballet) and back.
It seems there are defects like the white mark on some shots, not sure to blame processing or a light leak.
Finally comes the Saturday where we walked to Borough Market to stock up cheese.
I am not sure if the issue is with the processing or the film was scratched. Pity I wont be able to print it for him.
All shots with the Summaron 35mm F3.5 LTM, I love this lens, but you my know already.
