Once again I ran out of tri-x film but managed to get my hands on one roll of 15 year old tri-x and about 20 rolls of 10 years expired Ilford PAN 400 film. I got the Ilford for about $1.25 per roll so decided to risk it. Here is the result of the ancient tri-x roll and one long-expired Ilford roll. Surprisingly pleased with the results:)
The first few images are made with the Kodak Tri-x
Not one of the crowd
Reminded me of the hand from Adam’s Family
Just love how the guys in the background were hanging out with no safety harness or anything. Surprising to see two of them even wearing helmets
Man waits his turn outside a barbe stall as a woman waits for her husband to finish. Not sure if that is true, considering the waiting man had no hair, but that is how I saw it
The rest are with the Ilford PAN 400
These lines leading to the foreground are actually the suns rays coming through slats of a sheltering plank above
No dress code
Shoveling it down
The fellow on the right is mine!
Not sure why this guy had covered his face with some ash like substance but it got my attention
Looks like I will shoot all 20 rolls of the Ilford – the risk was worth it.
I am heading out of town for about 10 days and hope to return with with a stock of fresh film and some interesting images from a new city.
