The film leader, exposed to light when loading the film.
An image made with light on film.
Perhaps this is not really a photograph, I am not sure.
In any case, I like it, so here it is.
Olympus XA2, Kodak Gold 200. Film developed commercially, scanned with Epson V700.
Definitely Rothko-esque. Defo a photo.

Thank you! I am not sure that Andy was thinking of Rothko. It rings small bells for me of another artist whose name I can’t recall. Rothko, for me anyway, is about much deeper colours than these, and a cleaner feel (as opposed to this slightly dirty/grotty image).
Yes, I know what you mean. I spent ages in a room full of Rothko paintings. They were huge. Totally mesmerising. Cannot remember if it was MOMA in NYC or the Tate Modern in London.
I like it too. But it is too subtle to be a Rothko. I like yours much better. Every time you repeat it, it will be something new, the element of chance is at play.
Thanks Vera. Rothko is one of the possible comparisons, but there is someone else as well that made paintings rather like this on a large scale. Chance is one of the things I like about film, and especially expired film, though a modicum of control seems to make for better results (usually)!
I like it also!! and yes it does look like a painting….those gradations of color are so painterly.
Thanks Sherry – if there was someway of making these on purpose with some control – and there probably is – then it would be fun to play with it.
Well, I don’t care what you decide it is – I like it!
Me too – I like frost patterns as well, and sometimes the residue in a coffee cup or …
An accidental photograph. Reminds me of some of the abstract work of an American artist whose name escapes me
It reminded me of abstract painting as well. Or a small detail from a watercolour where a lot of water has been used.
of course it is a photograph! … ask the emulsion 😀
I never thought to ask the emulsion. Must try that.
Oh, crikey, I can see that as a huge oil painting.
I know what you mean. Makes you wonder eh? If it was intentional and repeatable I suppose there could be something to it.
