ektachrome gone bad

abused and forgotten

Downtown San Jose, seen on ancient, expired, poorly-stored, tungsten-balanced film being manually metered.

When you're shooting film you've bought off someone on Craigslist, the film is expired, and they're not a photographer, all bets are off. I bought this film from a nice family whose photographer uncle passed away. The film had expired in 1974 and was tungsten-balanced originally. I shot these photos manually metering through the Leica, so really, with all that in mind, I'm happy I got any results at all.
