Retina IIa with Wratten 23a filter

3 Days in “Our Town” with a Retina IIa, T-Max 100, Wratten 23A and Caffenol

In October 2022, Kate and I decided to spend a long Columbus Day weekend in Peterborough, New Hampshire. There, for more than 25 years, Monadnock Art has organized free tours of artist studios throughout the area. And we decided to spend that lovely fall weekend viewing (and maybe buying) some art.

It went well. We bought a pencil drawing and abstract painting. And I tested my Retina IIa with T-Max 100 film shot through a fairly unusual Wratten 23A filter… and later developed in Caffenol. NOTE: You can see my entire Go Kit here!
