It’s time to finally pack my bags and go, nice weather, new landscapes and seascapes are waiting for me! A week of travel ahead!
As planned, I’m packing three Pentax film SLRs, a panoramic and compact film camera, and a Canon DSLR. I took eight lenses for those two systems, and eight rolls of film. It should be enough!

So, I’m going on a vacation. My itinerary says I’m going to Labin, a smallish town in Istria, Croatia for a few days. After that, a day in Rijeka, and finally a few more days in Mandre, island Pag.

After a few years of hiatus, I’ve dug up my flatbed scanner, Canon CanoScan 8800F, the only working scanner I have that can scan medium format film.

There’s not much to say about development – I have only the traces of my favourite developer, Agfa Rodinal, but I have a few litres of fresh Kodak Xtol developer, so it was pretty obvious why I chose Xtol – I had it.

We had a week to shoot a roll (or sheet) of Ilford FP4 film, and I chose 135 format roll, with full 36 images to go through.

It’s that part of the year, it’s time to celebrate Ilford’s FP films, regardless of format. FP4 Party lasts all month, the first week of the month is for shooting, second for development, third for posting the photos, and the last for lamentations.
