This was where I went kamikaze. An old expired Indu film on an Agfa Click III which hadn’t been used for at least the last 20 years and developing in Caffenol with a slightly different mix to previous times. I am lucky at least this turned up.
Instant Coffee (Sunrise) 10g
Vitamin C 4g
Washing Soda 10g approximately.
Developed for 20 minutes. Agitated thrice every minute for the first ten. Let stand for next 5. Agitated thrice. Let stand for another 5 minutes.
A boat has packed up for the day at the busy Saraswati Ghat in Allahabad, on the penultimate day of the Maha Kumbh.
One of those rare days when you can see the buildings across from the Marine Drive clearly. There was no smog and the sun had just set. It was also a couple of hours before high tides as rocks became visible above the surface.
I kept an eye out for similar skies through the subsequent week or so but wasn’t lucky enough to get a smog-free evening again.
This was part of a much wider panorama, but the gaudy lighting around a marriage hall (?) required it to be cropped off.
