5 Frames - Rotten Apple

A work and leisure trip to the rotten apple. Because I do not shoot film in the pursuit of the dreamy, nostalgic, dare say “vintage” look. I shoot film because I collect ways to unintentionally mess up. And I am getting pretty good at it. These are 5 frames that originally were meant to be beautiful color images from around the Big Apple, but I royally messed up development. This was years ago. Sifting through my archives for things that I could create blog posts with, I tend to stumble over these ugly results and think to myself: “What would that look like with some heavy editing and a B&W filter slapped on top of it?” The answer is: Decent. Not like in “That looks decent.”, but more like in a short reprieve from the descent into the madness that is “shooting film”.
