Wimberley, TX and My New Lab-Box.

Today, I took a walking tour of Wimberley, Texas. Wimberley is a small town about 25 miles south of Austin, in the Texas Hill Country. The small town center has lots of shops and restaurants, and it’s fun to walk and people watch. I’ve also been wanting to take some medium format shots, since it’s been quite a while since I’ve used my Bronica. These were all shot with my 75mm lens.

So, I processed these using my Lab-Box – and it was my first time using it. Well, I loaded the film wrong and several exposures were lost due to the film touching in several spots. These 5 did develop correctly (except the first one, which was cut off slightly on the bottom, and the hat appears to have a defect). I think I like the one of baskets hanging best.

All in all, I like the Lab-Box concept. It does make it easy to load without using my light-proof bag, and maybe it will be easier for 120 film. I always seem to have trouble with 120, since I don’t do it as much as 35mm. Honestly, I’m not sure I will always use it for 35mm, since it only allows 1 roll at a time. In my tank, I can do 2 rolls at a time, and that speeds things up a bit.

Enjoy the few photos I have, and if you get a chance to try a Lab-Box for processing, let me know what you think.
