I took these photo close to Christmas when I visited my parents in Chicago back in 2004.  I used the bulk Agfa 100 B&W film that I brought and rolled the film myself into reusable 35mm film canisters.  I then developed them in the darkroom.  I remember I used a Nikon F2 back then, and I have to guess the exposure because the battery in the camera frozen and stopped working in the cold.   Because I was so novice back then, I screwed up the development time and probably did not guess the exposure right… The developed film came out extremly thin.

With the help of digital technology, I was able to recover most of the details on the images after scanning them into computer.  So thank you digital, you saved me and made my life so much easier.
