This is a roll of some rather unforgivable errors:
The fact that something could be seen from this roll is a big consolation prize for me. Owing to some stupidity, I mistook a roll of Pan 25 for Retro 400, and exposed it at EI 400. I still thought it was a roll of 400 right before I was ready to prepare the chemicals for it. If it wasn't raining and lightning outside when I finally had the realisation of my
stupid deed, i certainly felt that i was struck by lightning. But thanks to The Film Developing Cookbook, a few of my relatively "over-exposed" shots are rendered scannable.
Second error, the film was scratched basically from the last frame to the first.
Third, while i tried to hang the film up for drying, it dropped onto the bathroom floor and collected some dust. While not a costly mishap, it was a bit of a nuisance to have to roll it back onto a reel and have it washed again. Perhaps the scratch came from the fall.
The dilution and development time were more principle-based than empirical. But perhaps the principles of the Cookbook were empirical enough.
