Adventures In Colour

I picked up some rolls of outdated Kodak Color Plus film at a local antique dealer's and tested one out in my old Canon Canonet. There was some additional uncertainty with this adventure. Not only was the film ten years out of date but the Canonet's old selenium exposure meter was showing signs of imminent failure.
However, there were some interesting images that came out of this. Here is one that tests the colour balance, a flash shot of a blanket in glorious comic colour.


The colours in the photo look more like 1960s comic colours than those on the actual blanket.

The colours of nature come out in a warm almost sepia wash. Here are a couple of views of the River Nith in winter swell.















 The river looks almost bronze when backlit.










And here are a couple more taken with flash. The old rangefinder can still produce a good sharp image.



I've a couple more rolls of this film. I'll try some shots with my Zenit TTL when it's due another roll and see what a less Lomo camera makes of this old film stock.
