Formula for the bizarre:

1. One roll of very, very expired 120 format Technical Pan. I mean from October of 1989 expired, and found in the garage stored against an exterior wall in a desert environment for the last 10 years.

2. Diana+ camera on the pinhole + lens setting.

3. Expose for two minutes at the beach.

4. Process in Diafine but completely disregard their recommendations. Instead of three minutes in each solution, soak in solution A for 3 minutes, wash briefly in water, then 45 seconds in solution B. Fix and wash as usual.

Single-pass scanned with an Epson V750 Pro, no corrections or adjustments.

This is a beach in Del Mar, California. It's a great little cove for families to take their kids. There are tide pools and the beach is sheltered. It's also an underwater preserve, so there's no boating nearby, which makes it pretty quiet. The soft, sandstone walls of the cove make for interesting places for people to leave graffiti carved into the stone, as well numerous crevices and caves formed by the wind and surf. Besides the landscape, it also attracts an interesting collection of locals and tourists that are always fun to photograph.
