Cameras and Croissants: Pushed Rollei RPX 100 to 800 ISO

I decided to shoot a roll of Rollei RPX 100 at 800 ISO because after work we were going to see a friends art show at Highcroft Manor and it was all I had on me (silly I know I could have bought one of the many that surround me daily but I was feeling cheap). The rest of the roll I shot outside on a very early morning walk (7am-ish), though the sky was bright the shadows were still dark in the depths of the city. It was developed in Blazinal 1/25 for 29 mintes. I found this helped me to keep a faster shutter speed than if I’d shot it at 100 so the photos are sharp. Everything is very shadowy though, but I find I don’t mind this so much. It is possibly a little dark for most, but it definitely captured the feel. Crisp, cool, dark, clear morning sky, sunlight beaming through…
