Decided to do some film developing (it’s been awhile). Busted out my old supplies and developed in my bathroom. I had some unmixed d76 and kodak fixer laying around that I ordered a month ago. Developed some 120 film from my Holga. Will be developing some 35mm shot with the Canonet maybe later or tomm. FUN STUFF :)
