New55 of the day
Under the bicycle seat and seeming like a puddle in front of our inscribed box, lurks reagent spread artifact, invisible in the black sky, only seen in the deepest shadows.
Significant for being our first DTR and negative set (this is a scan of the negative above) using nothing from old Pol, but materials from China, India, and Connecticut, the positive, below it, is like a relic, sepia-toned, and contrasty, a flea market find.
And there is evidence of another experiment, painted as a curve on the receiver. Jack and I expected to see a dark area there and little image elsewhere, so we are surprised.
