Wellington, New Zealand, 2010/2011: This is what happens when you botch-up developing black and white film.  I struggled with loading the film onto the spool, got my fingerprints all over it in the process, couldn’t load the entire roll on the reel, and stuffed up the developing time.  A bit of a “devaster”-  but with […]
