    I wonder what actually creates that bloom- oxygen, atmospheric contaminants of some type?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I've always seen it referred to as oxidation.
    There were many attempts to produce said bloom under controlled conditions, none of which was very successful. Perhaps it just takes place so slowly that none of the processes were commercially valuable. The lens I referred to has been in my possession since the late 1980s, and it was well bloomed when it came to me.

    Lend it to a smoker for a few years.
    As a previously heavy smoker I can vouch for the film that forms on window glass and anything else in the room.
    To lend some credence to this notion, bear in mind the atmosphere in times past, especially in cities, was generally more heavily contaminated than we're used to now. Indoors; smokers, open fires, stoves, ranges, the general fug of living without adequate ventilation. Outdoors; plenty of smog, soots, industrial air pollution of many types.
