"Unhappy" accidental Holga light leak of a historic clock in downtown Apponaug, RI. Two years after I took this photograph, the clock tower was demolished. It's as if the light leak had a premonition of time's fate.

Created using my girlfriend's Holga 120S with 11 year expired AGFA RS100 Plus slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!

    sooo, this:

    "Holga 120S with 11 year expired AGFA RS100 Plus slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!"

    .....is a sentence I don't think that many of us will ever hear again. yep, that's a fairly safe assumption....

    to the photograph...if you've found out where that tear in time is located, send me directions....

    excellent...astonishing and surreal.

    11 years expired!! Do you buy already expired films, or do u stack them for decades? In any case, this is (picture, feel, story) fantastic!

    Great story. I did think nuclear flash, at first. My second thought was "Dr. Pepper." Do you remember that ad campaign, "10-2-4." We were supposed to swill that stuff three times a day, beginning at 10 A.M. LOL
