    The look of this photo by @nefarious is pretty much spot on for my tastes in colour film photography. Love the vertical grain fade especially

    Because you think Sky and Brailsford et al are powerful enough that you don't give a fuck about it being detected.

    Don't forget Cookson covering it up as president of the UCI at the time

    I'd imagine the clinic is having a field day for a Sky/Brit rider having a positive not long after Cookson has left.

    Interesting, I prefer the Frontier images above. I also always have to bump contrast in Lightroom / Snapseed for my Noritsu scanned images I get back from Filmdev and AG Photographic too.

    Tempted to try Frontier next time, although don't you get back lower res on equivalent scans vs Noritsu ?

    Sky don't do well at hiring doctors do they ?

    Leinders - doped riders at Rabobank
    Freeman - didn't back up medical records, lost laptop, too ill for nine months to testify. Ordered/received Testosterone by mistake
    Froome's doctor - gave Froome twice the legal limit of Salbutamol

    Aw man - I had this issue. Then they appeared after a couple of weeks. Did you add enough postage on em?

    10 days for a roll posted first class for me
    @nefarious I wouldn't give up hope just yet as post has also been affected by snowmageddon. I'm waiting for my Zeiss Nettar ebay purchase to turn up, posted by the seller last Friday

    It looks as if it's a Christmas market in the UK, Birmingham perhaps?

    It is indeed, well spotted. Where Brummies chow down on foot long sausages for the whole of December

    Those clearances look fine to me. If you are still worried, it might be worth trying another tyre companies 25's. I've found Conti to be at the fatter end of 25mm, while something like Veloflex are at the thinner end.

    Going to miss Fuji Superia 400 when it's (if, as predicted) discontinued. It's cheap, there's grain (but not too much), and saturated colours (but not overly so)

    I thought it was the same film, as Impossible bought out the rights to the Polaroid name this year, and you can still see the Impossible name on some cartridges of the new Polaroid labelled film.

    Yup. Impossible initially bought Polaroid's machinery, then subsequently bought the name.
    Impossible/Polaroid are now in the processing of suing Fuji for IP infringement - for using a white border around their Instax photos of all things.
