A colour negative film processed in E-6! I know this is to some a very rare thing to see since not all photolabs are willing to do it for you and when they do, there’s only a slim chance of having successful results.

It gave my shots a total new atmosphere with hues of yellow, green, rusty, pale, something vintage-look!
