It seems my PAW is getting somewhat out of hand and I end up posting
something from the last roll I took during the week instead of my favorite
shot from the week. I guess I prefer things that are most recent. I've
noticed a couple of other PAW:er have gone over to just posting when they
take a shot and are happy with it. I might do that next year. I need a
project ... I need a phone call ...

Anyway, yesterday was Lindome day with fun and games for all. Among other
things, a long distance race for all ages:

I've put up a Rollei shot too, from a walk earlier:

The main is my attempt to make friends with 400TX (still). It has nothing
to do with the film, actually, but with my particular set-up. There's a
theory that the grain pattern just happens to not get along with my
particular scanner (that's the theory, not mine). So I've switched
developers to muck with the grain a bit. HC-110 gives a different grain
pattern than Xtol and it seems that it gets along better with my scanner
(Minolta Dim?ge Dual II). I picked it up two years ago as a crutch when
lightning zapped out everything in the house. I guess it's about time to
leave the crutch and get a decent one ... particularly if I'm going to
start printing in a digital setup instead of wet darkroom. That's still an
"if", but it's leaning that way.

Burn me, look and go hohum or whatever. At any rate, thanks for you time.
