Jezza’s Film Follies – (‘Tri’-ing to be ‘Art’sy)

Con-Ed, a NY utility company. That's all I chose to say really

Con-Ed, an NY utility company. That’s all I choose to say, really.

As I mentioned in my last follies post, the Fujifilm Pro-400H was my 2nd to last expired film (read post here).  Well, this is the last of my expired film: Kodak’s 400 Tri-X professional black and white film.  This is also probably the least aged of my old film, only having expired around late 2013.  This film also gave me a (more…)
