I love the capture but never have loved grain.

Your mention of the temperature of the tap water reminds me of when I stopped doing my own B&W development. When we lived in Woodstock, NY from 1975-85 I had a nice darkroom and very cold well water. It was easy to get the proper developing temperature by mixing warm water with the cold. Then we moved to Florida where the "cold" water was always well above the optimal development temperature. I found it too much trouble to cool the water by adding ice and never replaced the full darkroom. Today I consider it a good riddance. Film is truly inconvenient.

Actually, I am cheating a bit; I scanned the negative yesterday, but the
picture was actually taken a week ago. Just a grab shot of Monica on the
kitchen terrace, on the eve of her departure for Cardiff to start her 3rd
year at university:

Tri-X sure is grainy, especially if you develop it in water that is way
too warm (our tap water is 27-28 C). I adjusted the time, but I think this
is still too warm.

Cheers,
