This one goes out to Megan Green who was kind enough to ship me her remaining supply of expired films on the condition that they find a good home. I am so greatful for her kind gift of over 30 rolls of 120 film. I only hope that I can create something close to the amazing toy camera images she has posted here and on her website.

Image of the aftermath of the catastrophic Pawtuxet River floods of 2010.

Created using a 1960's original Diana toy camera with Свема Фото 65 (63 ГОСТ - 19 DIN - 63 ASA) Film that expired in 1989. Negative scanned using an Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipultion.

Ps. Thank you Michele for the spotlight and nomination.

Ps. Also, thank you Danica for the spotlight.
