A slow Sunday, and that meant slow film. Grabbed a roll of Efke25 from the freezer, and aimed it through my 500cm into a mirror.

I've been looking forward to use Efke25 in the Hass, and even more so, to try Pyrocat-HD developer.

It's not classic photography until your taking pictures of yourself in a mirror, and you're wearing a mask, and rubber gloves when you develop the film.

Very gentle agitation every minute, acid stop, and TF-4 fixer.

    If the negative was reversed the crank and lettering would be correct. Of course, this is just my opinion ; I like the photograph very much.
