X-mas crossed: processing slide film with the Naniwa Colorkit N

Germany is full of Christmas fairs this time of the year. They are to be found in every larger town and even in some villages.

In fact, though I had bought some Fuji Pro800 rollfilm and a Naniwa Colorkit N C-41 developing kit earlier, I held them back for just such fears. Then when the fall color got very intense this year, I couldn‘t go on photographing in black & white. The first two rolls of 120 film I dropped off at my local photo shop, getting a digi-evangelization in the process.
