Don’t hit back! Don’t hit back! Don’t hit back! OK. I did get slapped! It’s a tradition. What can I say? Last night was the most fun that I had had in a very long time.

I sent the information to Ilford, they requested additional information such processing type, type, temperature, etc. I provided the information.
