Just watching the sparks fly. Shot on Kodak Tri-X film, as b&w developing is so simple to do at home and the negs are easy to scan, I still shoot the occasional roll.

Great capture John....good work with the Minolta Film Camera.....i have never tried to scan a negative....
years ago my son took over my work shop after we got him a B&W developer....he did some great work with 30 year old "Brownie Box: negatives for me....it was fun to see what he could do with them.....we have since lost track of the equipment during one of our four moves grin.....petersmile
