Into each life some rain must fall

Camera: Calumet CC-401 4x5 large format monorail view camera

Lens: Rodenstock Geronar 150mm F6.3 lens in a Copal 0 shutter

Film: Arista EDU 100 Ultra 4x5 B&W sheet film which I shot at 64 ISO

Settings: Shot at F32, 1/8th second shutter speed. Metered with a Pentax 1 degree spot meter.   

Development: Self Developed film in Rodinal 1:100 using semi-stand development in Paterson Universal Tank using the Taco Method.  Tap water stop bath.  Ilford Rapid Fixer.  Photo-Flo.  Hung on shower curtain to dry on film clips. 

Scanning: Negative scanned with Epson V600 in two parts and merged in Photoshop CS5 since the V600 doesn't natively support scanning 4x5 sheet film and I haven't stepped up to the V700 yet.
