Photo of the Day by fotobes

Those aren’t two guys walking on water, but the product of a film swap between two guys and some serious cooking.

Fotobes from the United Kingdom and hodachrome from Japan swapped a roll of film, and concocted some film soup. This is one of the images that came out. Hodachrome used this recipe to make the soup in Japan, but fotobes did his share of experimental cooking as well.

On completing the roll, I mixed together some boiled water with silica gel and washing detergent, and left it to cool a little. Then I went into my make-shift darkroom and pulled out the film from the canister. Next I flicked and dabbed the soup onto the exposed film. I waited for a few minutes and then rewound the film into the canister. Afterwards I went to the kitchen and dropped the film into just-boiled water, and after 5 minutes I transferred it into cold water for a minute. Then back in the darkroom I pulled the film out from the canister again and dried it with a hairdryer, and when done I rewound the film.

Congratulations to fotobes and also hodachrome for your winning shot!
