During the development of one roll of three, I unfortunately removed the ‘light sealing funnel’ from a development tank and the whole roll was instantly ruined. It’s never nice when you loose images and especially when they were the ‘kookiest’ of the set. Robert would be game to re-shoot this set I’m sure, but part of me believes what is meant to be is meant to be, and re-shooting is not true to the natural progression of the project. I’m pretty happy with the set regardless.
Yes, this is twice within a week I’ve messed up during the development stage, and I disrespected the process, so it disrespected me I guess. I declared that I would stop developing in the evenings and went ahead and did exactly that while tired once again. I’ve now swapped things around, and moved development 100% to the following day, and scanning negatives if required into the evening. I’ve learnt my lesson. Next week I’m going to slow things down more. Anyway, next week I’m going to photograph a husband and wife operation near the Southern Alps, and they employ all casual staff who are Mums. I may have hit a jackpot for documenting more females within the community, and I’ll share more about this later.
