Gardening For Ordnance – exploring the concept with expired film

My recent batches of expired 120 film that I am using for my Gardening For Ordnance project has been providing some pretty drastic visual effects.

One of the interesting outcomes of preparing to make my Gardening For Ordnance publication submissions is that I am gaining better clarity on the pre-visualization of the pending book (yes, there is always another book in my future).
