It’s a cog wheel. It’s on that big crane thingy on the pier at Donaghadee. What’s special about it?
It was captured on a manual Nikon FG20 on Ilford FP4 ISO 125 film. I found an old bottle of Ilfosol 3 Developer in the garage and decided to try it out. This developer is noted for its fine grain. The bottle was still unopened and even though it must be about four years old the liquid was still clear. I developed the film for 7 minutes. The guideline was 4.25 minutes, but I didn’t trust it! Especially when it said that dev times of less than 5 mins could give patchy results. So 7 mins it was and the negs are lovely. Good contrast, low grain.
Here’s a few other examples…
