1. I shot some Ektachrome and had it processed at Blue Moon Camera and Machine in Portland. They even put them in the little slide holders. I have enough of these now where I could probably put together a little slide presentation at some point.

2. I shot some Kodak Ektar on my Zero Image and got some prints done, again by Blue Moon.

3. I decided that I really, really like the look of Ilford HP5+ shot at ISO 1600 and pushed two stops.

4. I snagged up some new Ilford Ortho Plus in both 120 and 35mm formats. I haven't shot it yet, but I wanted to have some on hand for when I do. That will definitely be a 2020 project.

5. I got some Lomo Purple from 2018 processed and printed. In fact, I got a lot of 35mm prints from Blue Moon made in 2019.
|Lomo Purple. And there's more where that came from.|
6. I figured out Ilfotec DD-x doesn't play nice with Ilford HP5+ at box speed. Not the way I shoot and develop, anyway. In coming to this conclusion, I first had to eliminate the possibility of a faulty camera.

7. I took a group of middle school kids on a trip to the Columbia River Gorge and I brought along the Zero Image.
