Past Imperfect
Gelatin-silver photograph on Ultrafine Silver Eagle VC FB photographic paper, image size 21.3cm X 16.4cm, from a 4x5 Tri-X Pan Professional negative exposed in a Tachihara 45GF double extension field view camera fitted with a 150mm f4 Wollaston Meniscus soft-focus lens and a #25 red filter.

My photographer friend died after a long long illness and some of his equipment passed into my hands. There were many film holders that he had loaded with Tri-X fifteen years previously but could not expose. The film had corroded through the passage of years but I used it to photograph a scene that we had contemplated together in times past.

Aaaaah, the veneration of the aberration!!! How I love it!! Something that will never happen with digital capture, but watch some techno-boffin make a filter to 'emulate' it if they haven't already).

Gloriously lavish exploitation of the entire medium.
