Caffenol - Not Everyone's Cup Of Tea

Yesterday I went to one of my favourite stomping grounds to put an old Leica IIC through it's paces. With a roll of FP4+ and a Jupiter 35mm lens, it really was a liberating experience. Preset focus and the "Sunny 16 exposure rule" meant freedom to concentrate on composition rather than technicalities. The choice of developer was Caffenol. Despite harsh midday lighting, the extreme contrast range was handled well by agitation-free stand development.
