Pipes and Meters Downtown

I'm officially having too much fun with this x-ray film! At < $0.25/sheet, I'm now taking two shot at a time! This affords me the luxury of having a backup sheet of film, just in case something goes wrong during development. Today's photo, was the direct result of taking that second shot.


You see, this super cheap x-ray film is orthochromatic, aka they can't see any red light whatsoever. Well, guess what color these bricks, pipers, and meters are? This exposure needed a heck of a lot of light, and it seems like of the two, this exposure with a ton of direct sunlight was the only thing giving density to the negative.
