52 Photographs (2018) #7: A post-card of Paris in Ferrania P30
Week number 7: snow still lay on the ground in Paris. I went out for a walk with some of Film Ferrania’s wonderful P30 film loaded in my camera. In fact it was my last roll of P30 (since then, more went on sale briefly through Maco, but I hestiated, and missed buying it).
Yes, this photograph looks like a postcard. In fact, I went to our photo-lab, printed it out, stuck it to some card and voila !
I sent it to a relative, who much appreciated it. It turns out that in the old days, (1920s) a lot of people did this — photographs were printed onto card and then sent as postcards. It’s fun!
Technical note: I processed my roll using D96, and I think it looks good! Better than the other developers that I used before. Processing P30 is a hot topic over on Emulsive.

This is a great image!
Thanks Scott, and thanks for your nice article on Emulsive. I hope we can buy some P30 again very soon!
