Ahh, now you're getting into us old folk's domaine. I've been away from the
darkroom for a lot of years, but that TriX/D76 1:1 combination was also my
favorite for street photography during HCB's hayday. I still swoon over
those tight, sharp as a tack grain clumps with their surprisingly good tonal
range. Sorry about this...I'll get back on topic as soon as I wipe the
perspiration from my brow.
