52:320TXP - Week 48 - The Gazebo Awakens

So the rather odd title comes from a story a friend tells of a D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) match where one of the players doesn’t know what a Gazebo is and proceeds to think it is a mystical creature, the DM (Dungeon Master) fed up by the player informs him that the Gazebo comes awake and kills him. Don’t worry; this gazebo is asleep and hasn’t been pushed into action. Yet. But after several weeks of wanderings, I’ve come back home here for week 48 and the gazebo that sits out over the Mill Pond. Also, this is where the town of Milton originally sprung up when Jasper Martin established a grist mill in the mid-19th century. The mill sadly burned to the ground in the 1960s, and nothing remains of it today. This was also the first time using Kodak Microdol-X as a developer for the film (after testing it out on a sheet of Plus-X to double-check the old packet I got worked); I’m pleased with the results but didn’t find anything special about it. There was noticeably less grain but nothing that Xtol couldn’t do. While Kodak has stopped production of Microdol-X, you can still get a similar developer from Freestyle: LegacyPro Mic-X.

Roll for Exposure.
