Re: Palladium and Na2

Hi Loris,


I'm developing out Palladium (hopefully). I'm in the UK at the moment (until tomorrow) so I assembled all my chemicals here. I may still need to call your friend, I haven't as yet, to ask about tri-x in 35mm. There are none available to me here. It's really quite strange. 120 yes, 35mm no..It's really strange that when one packs tubs of photographic chemicals into a suitcase how closely they resemble more sinister implements.

sensitizer (are you doing develop-out or print-our PD?) with good


Irrelevant question: Have you contacted the supplier in Istanbul already
or do you still need my help?
