I made some fantastic headway over the weekend developing old rolls of film that I never got around to processing over the years. Ten rolls of film over the course of two days which is a heck of a lot for me. Of course, it really helped that the weather was bad here in Portland with some fairly heavy wind storms and cold weather gusting through the city. Such times always put me in the mood of turning out the lights, cranking up the heat, and just developing film while playing old records. Life doesn’t get much better than that now does it?
Just to date this particular image, I can tell by the notches on the left side of the frame that this image was made with a Hasselblad 500c/m. So that means I would have exposed this frame somewhere around 2007. The film was also Fomapan 100, but not the Fomapan 100 one can buy today. Instead it was Fomapan from back when the film base came out an aqua blue. Am I the only one who was using Fomapan film back then? I have fond memories of that blue film base and always that it was super cool looking. Now days Fomapan film is just like any other film stock in that the base of the film is perfectly clear. So again, that dates this particular image to well over a decade ago.
Time can certainly get away from me. Looking at this image it makes me wonder and question what photographs I make today will I be developing ten years from now?
