Roll #54 – Kodak Portra 160VC

Kodak Portra 160VC (Medium Format, expired 07/2000)

Somehow I started a small photo project on the topic “Blue”. The first images were taken with Leo (of Kupfer & Eisen) along a small canal near her apartment. I didn’t really have a plan, but Leo helped out immensely.

Some photos came out great, some very strange – guess that’s what you get for using film stock, that expired 17 years ago. I’ll probably use up what I have and focus on buying fresh film after that.
