I love coffee. It is my morning kick start at 3AM and mid-morning liquid motivation. It has been for years, but it wasn’t until recently that I learned of a film development process that requires only coffee, Vitamin C, Sodium carbonate and salt as ingredients. I certainly won’t drink this concoction, but it really does work. Just one more reason to love that morning cup of joe.

You may have noticed vertical scratches on many of my images, and while I am not quite sure what causes them, I suspect it may be the bulk film loader I am using. The first reel of film is nearly exhausted, which will give me an opportunity to inspect it thoroughly before replenishment. I don’t care for technical perfection, so the scratches don’t bother me (they’re kind of appealing to me actually.)
