    This negative is from the 'lame concept' set, but the film had been loaded into the holder in 1989. Since I didn't think it would come out at all, I just shot it, and didn't do any camera 'movements' at all. Obviously there was major fogging and there are some weird lines on the film (including an old fingerprint) but I was VERY surprised to see this image when it came out of the tank:

  5. 'Kool Extra Extra' grade on this one
     
  6. Actually the woman in the glass pane looks like a spiritual manifestation. My middle son once went on a ghost hunting session one Saturday evening in Old Towm Alexandria Va. The houses were supposed to be haunted; they were prepared with all sorts of electroinc equipment. He did get photographs of a few tiny white, golf ball-sized, orbs in one attic. One place he went into he felt incredible icy chills when he entered a room. They left very quickly.

    Thanks Paul! Thanks Rodney! Rich, I have yet to see a photograph of an "orb" that isn't obviously oof dust lit by a flash. And I want to believe! Paul are you familiar with Max Borne? There is only one electron and it goes forward and backward in time, making us believe there are a lot of them. And nobody has proven otherwise yet.

    Rodney, Super-Angulon lenses are large format lenses made by Schneider with a huge image circle. I got it in my youth because I liked Adams back then, and it's what he used. Here it is:

    The roof...the roof...the roof is on fire!
     
  13. Chris, it's superb! Please burn the lower right part so it becomes darker. The image will become more realistic and the eyes will be less bothered by that part...

    Thanks Mike, Ray, Joshua and Ned.

    I haven't done anything on this, but I suspect that I inadvertently made a double exposure. The brightness on the right side is fog - a tiny light leak over the nearly 2 decades the film sat in the magazine.
    (My box of film is just as old, but kept in a double box with a black paper bag.) So there is low contrast there as well as lightness. When (if - the semester is winding down) I print this, I'll try split filtration to fix it, as well as burning.

    As far as any paranormal explanation ... do they have cell phones on the other side?
     
  15. Superlative imagery Chris..............

    Enough said.
