For some reason my scanner didnt want to cooperate and scan the black frame, instead it must have thought that nothing was there on some of the pictures.

Polaroid One Film EXP 1996

My latest expired film experiment involved a Polaroid camera I purchased bundled with two rolls of Polaroid one (35mm film).  The results were mixed to pretty darn good.  Enjoy.

As you can tell there is a bit of grain on photos of long range landscapes or the sky.  The upclose photos of the flowers turned out much better as far as the level of grain.

Kodak Ultra 400 Advantix Film

The film I chose to cover in this entry is Kodak Advantix (APS) Ultra 400. This film was originally sold in the European markets. I came across 5 rolls of it on eBay a few weeks ago and thought I would give it a try. The film expired in May of 2006 and is a 40 exposure roll, I feel like I got over with this roll, my prints came back with 41!

As you can tell, this film, as most film 10 years past its expiration date responds well to bright sunny days.

Betty Howard Coal Miner’s Memorial Theater –Harlan County, Kentucky

The theater was built by the coal company in 1921. Over the years as with many coal company towns, the theater and other buildings fell into disrepair. Benham, however is a great success story of preservation and rejuvenation. On July 21, 1983 the theater along with most of the other buildings surviving in Benham were placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

That includes the theater. The town sought for private funding to restore the theater. In December of 2006 the theater was re-dedicated.
