    I have bleached latent images -- maybe I should not have developed them. Perhaps manipulated latent images are worth more than straight latent images?
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    garry winogrand i think left 10,000 rolls of unprocessed film ...

    i don't think much deserves to be permanent ... unless it is on the internet

    sounds like a good art exhibit ...
    just filmholders and spooled film
    leaving it to the imagination of the viewer
    what they may or may not be looking at ...

    retina and other unstable images would be perfect for this, seeing they
    decompose / are destroyed the moment they are made

    great thread cliveh !!

    This whole topic reminds me of what Piero Manzoni was trying to get across

    I think we should just sell sheet metal and rubber stock to people instead of finished cars, so they can imagine themselves driving a car that isn't complete. That would be great value.

    And I think Brahms was right in doing that too. It shouldn't have to be that way, but unfortunately there has always been the foolish tendency to try finish what was left unfinished. Mahler, Bruckner and others have been victims of this sort of stupidity.

    Sounds more like an emotional issue than photography.

    I have the most incredible and magnificent images in my head that I never bothered to take pictures of, never stopped the car, never put down my beer and snapped a picture.

    When I croak they should put my head on display and people can walk by and know that those images are in there, but just far too magnificent for the likes of them to see.

    The greatest pictures never taken.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    If film was still celluloid, all the negatives could be made into a bomb, to be used in a modified Viking-type funeral.
