Developed my first roll of film in 24 years!

I know with digital photography we can now get instant gratification from the pictures taken, but it's still a thrill for me after all these years to develop my own film and see the results soon after removing the film from the tank. At first glance they appear to have come out well. I took a roll of photos last September when my first SLR turned 30 years old. Tonight I got all the chemicals I need assembled in the downstairs bathroom. The whole development process took about 20 minutes. Once the negatives dry, I will take them to be be printed and scanned. I had forgotten how good B&W photos look when taken using a high quality 35mm film (TMax 100).
