Some cool cool photography images:
An evening in Manhattan Beach
Image by Stuck in Customs
It was a cool night… much cooler than the 100 degree heat here in Austin this week! I stopped to take this picture on the way back to my hotel for the evening… people coming and going down by the pier.
My Tutorial is right here – I have over 16,500 unread emails – sorry but I am too swamped – but most of you ask for that tutorial, so there it is! 🙂

I’ve now made it most of the way through my stockpile of exposed black and white film, but meanwhile my stockpile of exposed color film has kept growing and growing. I’ve got a new C-41 kit waiting to be mixed up, but I was curious to find out if my old batch of Arista C-41 chemistry still had any life in it. I had mixed that batch last May and hadn’t used it since July, so I knew it was risky, but I decided to sacrifice a roll of Kodak Ultra Max 400 that I had shot with my Ancso Pix Panorama on the altar of science. I increased developing time to try to compensate for the age and exhaustion of the developer, but I evidently didn’t increase the time enough, as the negatives came out extremely thin. Even so, I was able to get some scannable images. Normally I’d try to clean up all those drying marks and other junk in the image, but here I think they contribute to the overall effect.
