After two and a half years of waiting, postponing, lame excuses and unexpected last minute delays I’m not sure if this is really real or if I passed away last night and woke up in a parallel universe of infinite possibilities. But a box arrived today and it says Lab-Box.
I’ll keep you posted when I develop my first roll of film in it but I have been super lazy shooting film for a couple of months. And to be honest I was even thinking of quitting film altogether as I currently can’t justify keeping all the gear for two rolls of film a year but maybe this little box came just in time.
Once again there was a delay in Lab-Box’s communication updates and another promise wasn’t kept. Of course this belated update has the same old purpose that we already know too well – they are sorry but they have to tell us another unforseen delay in delievery and the scapegoat is clear: the Chinese!
As I currently have a long article in the making which still needs some time to be finished I’ll just post a short update as the Lab-Box Kickstarter campaign informed all backers about its latest progress.
No reason for premature celebrations but it looks like the Lab-Box development tank will one day become reality. The makers posted a new update here and they seem to have made some progress. And they encountered new issues, so hang on…
After the few days in Holland we went to Germany’s Ruhrgebiet or as they call it the “Ruhrpott”. This area of Germany is famous for its open-cast mining and steelworks some of which are active to this day.
I decided to create a second post with only the landscape and scenerey shots that I brought home from Portugal’s Algarve coast which is the most southern part of Portugal and one of the most remote places in whole Europe.
