Impossible Project also makes "Black Frame" film for the SX-70 and I am giving it a whirl. I guess it really does not matter if I buy traditional white or this, as I can make one into the other in Photoshop in a minute with the selection tool and a paintbrush. Made it to Lake Superior near the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness between rain. Managed to shoot exposures for four Polaroid SX-70 Emulsion Lifts (Diptychs this time-two images per collage). Also shot my first roll of Ilford HP-5 with the new Holga at the beach as well. Takes some getting used to again after all these years away from film. Development using PMK Pyro developer was ten minutes at 75F, but I think next time nine will be just fine. On the way home, I discovered a few patches of Dame's Rockets, which while plentiful in Southwest Michigan, are more scarce in the Upper Peninsula. In addition, a new wildflower for me-Comfrey, growing right next to it. Apparently it is a medicinal herb that can be used on cuts. Always a treat to learn a new flower. The rain held off long enough for me to finish the front lawn, allowing for freedom to fish tomorrow. Life is good. My little resident male Wren that worked so hard buiding a nest to attract a mate has left. In reading, I discovered that the male may build up to 12 nests in cavities or nest boxes like mine, and the female chooses which pleases her (hmmmmmm.....) The bluebird couple have settled in.
