Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:9, 12 mins at 20°c.

An image from a roll of film that’s been sitting in the ‘to be developed’ pile since August last year!

Stone Stair Carpet by Colin Wilbourn is part of a sculpture walk along the River Wear in Sunderland and replace the worn out originals at the old North Dock.

This was my first roll of CineStill BwXX in 120 format and the first I’ve developed myself… I will definitely be shooting more!

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.

More people need to practise this…

So many of my friends, employed in service industries, are finding their working days being made thoroughly unpleasant thanks to customers who can’t even be ‘civil’ let alone ‘excellent!’ to them… Being on the recieving end of outright abuse is becoming a daily occurence for some of them and it needs to stop!

End of sermon…

This piece of street art was spotted in Norwich a few weeks ago, after an hour of trawling the internet I still don’t know who painted it but it may be the work of artist Tony Allen… If anyone knows for certain, please tell me.
