Doing the Thing I Do (Part I)

Hasselblad 500 CM, 80 mm CF lens with 21 mm tube extension, metered at f16 1/8 iso 400, shot at f16 1/15, expired Kodak Tri-X 400, self-developed using Ilford Ilfosol 3, Ilfosol Stop, Rapid fixer

Through the years I've gone through several pairs of eyeglasses.  Rose saved most of them thinking that one day I might use them as artwork.  I never really was inspired to do something artsy about them until now.

This was one of the 12 images from a roll of an expired Kodak Tri-X 400.  The final image is supposed to be in black and white - so I suspect that the funky bluish color is the result of the film being expired.  This was not part of my plan when I shot the image but the element of surprise enhances the wow factor in my opinion.

I have quite a few of unexposed expired films sitting inside the refrigerator.  The conventional wisdom is that films stored in a refrigerator are still useable.  They however don't mention how useable they are.  I'm planning to use them soon so I'm going to be in for a lot of surprises.
