Monochrome Tropics...

Olympus OM1 + 50mm/f1.8 + Expired Ilford FP4 Plus 125 + Home Development.

 

10mins intermittent agitation in a spiral developing tank with Ilfotec DD-X (1+4)

 

The FAQ pages on the main Eden website (see below for link...) describe the 'windows' or 'glass' of the Biomes as: constructed with; "...galvanised tubular steel, covered with a triple layer of ETFE (Ethylene TetrafluoroEthylene Co-Polymer) foil.

 

EFTE is a transparent, recyclable foil and should last for about 30 years. It is anti-static and therefore self cleaning. It is very strong, transparent to UV light and is not degraded by sunlight. The whole structure is guaranteed maintenance free for 25 years."
