Well past it

I picked up an old Nikon F2 from Portobello Market today.

Like me, it used to be a workhorse of the newspaper industry but is now obsolete.

Joseph who runs the stall chucked in a roll of Kodak Tri-X for me, which also turned out to be well past it – nearly 42 years in fact.

I overexposed it by a stop, but it I’ve no idea how what’s going to come out of the developing tank. The enigma of decay…
Update:
Here’s a couple of shots from the roll. Joseph said it would be “soft, dreamy, very artistic.”
