this has an involved history. It was shot with a cobbled camera on a paper negative // then it was contact printed with a daylight contact printer. It was also accidentally solarized then trashed. Recoverd from the trast scanned in color then reversed the color to get this. and way to many post production things done to it. Still I wanted to show the color of the scan.

This is beautiful, especially with the knowledge that something like this, that has such intrinsic beauty, was rescued from disposal.

The color of the tone works well with the bottle - it has the color of an old bottle - and the interesting texture to the print's surface adds to the old glass-like effect. Well done.

Yes, that is cool. Like the saying goes "One man's trash is another...

Looks like an underwater still life.

I liked it after I scanned it and reversed it in color, but I had no idea why. It just had a eerie feel to it.
