Ilford HP5 Exp. 1988

For my birthday my dad gave me an old box of Ilford Film, mainly FP4. The first roll I tried was a HP5 though. I considered the missing dx markings on the case would lead to a +2 Exposure on my Olympus mjuII, which would be perfect. I developed in Rodinal 1+50 for 12 minutes with inversions for 10s per minute. The film came out with wonderful grey tones under a cloud of age. I scanned the negatives using an Epson V800 and adjusted contrast in lightroom. I intentionally left the chalk stain on the negatives to show their chronological connection.

on the way from venice to zagreb i visited castello miramare 5km northwest from trieste. i had a wonderful break in the park surrounding the beautiful building and took a lot of pictures with my analog nikon camera. i am really looking forward to develop this roll of film since it is such an amazing scenic place.

i then drove through the small streets of trieste. a wonderful city which i visited 2 years ago. the weather was very cloudy and it started to rain so i was off to croatia.
