I do not question if Brussels is a metropolis. It is so-called the capital of Europe. Opposite to the lack of sunshine this city has many cultures. What I really find is the vibe it has for the cultural activities. Botanique is a holly place for this respect. During the Nuits 2013, I had very pleasing gigs at the Museum. Hope to see you next year!

I would like to see more of these electric vehicles in Brussels.
Zen Car is a wholly new concept of green mobility. It is a simple and practical system of car-sharing. And not just any car! A 100% electric, silent and non-pollutant car!
Hiring an electric car in time-sharing means:
you don’t have the annoyances that come with owning a car
the ideal addition to public transport
the alternative to buying a car
a concrete gesture towards sustainable mobility
a simplicity solution for the city
a nice way of reducing your car expenditure
Electric car-sharing, it’s yours when you need it. The rest of the time, others will use it. With this, you will join a new vision of the world and of mobility. Think of yourself, but also of others. Including plants, the city, the air…
One of my new year resolutions was to process my own film. I done it. This was an expired B/W Orwopan 100 film that I have shot in December before Christmas with my Carena SRH1000. The film slept for a while. In November last year I got a special bag to use as a dark room to roll films to the processing tank. In January I have obtained the chemicals. So I was ready to go. And finally last weekend I give it a shot!
Results are almost terrible but ok, this is the first trial. Here I should indicate what I have used to process the B/W film.
- Ilford ID 11 as the developer
- Amaloco s10 as the stop bath
- And finally Ilford rapid fixer
I am using JOBO 1520 universal tank and a very good quality (American brand) dark room bag. I have to add that I got three beakers from Carrefour to measure the chemicals and also a thermometer.
I have watched many tutorials about film processing on youtube but you learn only when you do it. My biggest mistake in this first trial was to use a little bit less developer chemical and also not to shake it very proper. So this is the lesson learned. I also have to admit that I am still not very good at rolling the film to the spiral for the processing tank. There I have lost some parts of the film and put my finger prints.
Once the processing was completed I hang the film rolls dry and next day scanned them with my Epson V500. As I have not yet bought any film envelopes the film was rolled so was very difficult to place in the scanner film holders. This is a final lesson for the future.
I look forward for new adventures with the B/W white films.
