What happens to film if the photo flow is not used?

If you squeegee the water off really well, nothing happens. Photo-flo is a wetting agent; it causes the wash water to flow off the film evenly. If the wetting agent is not used and the squeegeeing has not been adequate, you'll get really strange drying marks on the film that won't come out.

How do freezing thawing wetting and drying contribute to soil creep?

Freezing/Thawing - Water in the soil freezing creates ice crystals that push the soil particles outwards, causing what is called "heave." When the ice crystals thaw, the soil flows don the slope due to gravity. Wetting/Drying - Heavy rainfall causes an increase to the moisture in the soil, which increases the volume and weight of the soil. This allows the soil to move down the slope under the influence of gravity. When the soil, especially clay, dries out, the soil contracts.
