Of all the things I know
I understand almost nothing

Tribute to a fallen hero

























Yes you are right, a bit cheap, social kitsch. But there is more to this picture than the 2012 contrast, the 1987 Agfa Ortho and the 1956 Argus C3.


The Eastman Kodak Developing Powder.


Yes, the Giant is now on his knees, but we should never forget the great quality stuff we all enjoyed.
This developer could well be a century old (look at my flickr photostream erwinruys) and it still performed as promised by uncle Eastman.
Because these "developing powders" are nameless, I think they are pre D76, 
and that is ± 1927!
