I am a week late...alas. Seems 120 film is sent about 1000 miles, literally, down to South Carolina, to get processed. I used Ilford XP2, that I had hanging around in my fridge. I think I will pick up a used developing tank!

Here's the link to the full roll. It's from an Ikonta 521/2, which is 6x9, so I only needed 8 shots!

Having 8 shots with a cranky old beast that needs to carefully have the film advanced with a knob whilst watching numbers in a little red window on the back, and remember to cock the shutter...and a top speed of 1/300, and scale focusing...not an action camera. One needs some deliberation. Oh, used an E-P2 as a light meter...

Here's the 3 I like best:

#1 Alewife T-Station, Cambridge, MA, USA

#2 Porter Square, Cambridge, MA, USA

#3 My Boston street, Boston, MA, USA - about 30 seconds at f11.

My math is:
    shoot May 5
    post within 14 days (May 19)
    posted May 25

....so a week after the final due date...just like school!

It's sad that it takes over 2 weeks to get C-41 process 120 film processed by normal labs now...they all send it out to North Carolina to a big Fuji plant that seems to do most of the commodity level process in the US...

Next time I'll pay for one of the better pro labs or shoot silver-based film and process myself...it will be good to smell those chemicals again.

I'm very late, but I guess it's not that important now the thread is so old. At least they were taken on the day. It was just before I went to Australia. I spent the day teaching people woodwork - how to build a beehive.
