lomography babylon 13 black and white film.

I am always looking for a film that will give me a new look for the images I create in the desert. I have already shot Lomography’s Potsdam 100 ISO Black and White Film (https://stevenlawrencepictures.com/2022/02/07/centralia-february-4-potsdam-kino-100/) and still have a roll of Fantome ISO 8 black and white film to be shot. These images are from a roll of Babylon 13 black and white film. I set my Pentax Spotmeter V at ISO 12 and used it to determine my exposures. I used the Nikon FM3a with a Nikkor 50mm 1:2 lens attached. I developed the film in HC-110(B) for 8 minutes and 30 seconds @20C. The film curls, but I had no problem scanning it on a PrimeFilmXE film scanner. In Silverfast, I set the vendor to ‘other’ and set the ASA/ISO to ‘monochrome.’ There was enough sunlight to avoid using a tripod. The film canister is plastic and cannot be opened. I pulled the film leader out of the canister and then in the film changing bag attached the film leader to the plastic spool and wound it out of the canister. The film passed my test and will be going to the desert. Here is a link to a review of the film at B and H (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1624933-REG/lomography_f13bw35_lomography_b_w_iso_13_35mm.html/reviews).
