Meet Bob exposure no. 2

Kiev 60 Arsat 250mm f3.5 Kodak Tri-x 400 Professional Adonal 1:50 - Meet "Bob," the co-alpha female of the feral cat clan that rules our street. She reigns with the older, larger "Hitler," named for her white Hitler mustache and dominate demeanor. Their clan makes sure the rodent and snake population in our neighborhood stays in check, and in return they feast on left overs. Bob is a particularly good mole hunter, carefully tracking their underground movements and then, with surgical precision, digging them out of the lawn. She often offers them in trade for a meal better suited to her tastes.

It has probably 20 years since I have shot a roll of Tri-X, an old favorite. I loved it for its grain and contrast, especially when pushed. Now it seems like a perfect match for Adox Adonal (Rodinal). The grain is surprising fine and the tonal range is outstanding. Bob is a light grey cat, with subtle darker grey and white markings, all rendered in great detail.
