I swear I know how to spool film

…but this time I just couldn’t make it work. When you develop Film it needs to be put in a plastic spool so there’s space between the layers of film and every piece of film gets in contact with the developer. I spent 45 minutes trying to spool some 120 film and then gave up – it just wasn’t working and the images weren’t important enough, so I thought I’d just toss the film into the development tank and see what happens.

Surprisingly, the results are still pretty good!

I expected more damage, similar to what I saw with my first time developing in Caffenol, but surprisingly only two images were completely damaged.
