Somewhere in 1997 I sold two of my cameras (Pentax and Nikon) and I gave away my Canon EOS 650 and then I came to my senses and got the Canon back and found out someone had gotten good deals on my Pentax and Nikon at the pawnshop where I had taken them. And then I put away the Canon and left it in a cupboard for 5 years and then one day I got the itch to start taking photographs once again.

This is an image that resulted from having left my Kodachrome 64 slide film in my Canon EOS 650 for approximately five years. I thought the images would have faded completely but I was quite surprised by some of the images that were on the developed roll.

Added the bordering from Paint Shop Pro... reminds me of the days of taking film.

The photograph was taken under the historic Forks Walking Bridge which is part of the Trans Canada Trail with the view east across the Red River to Saint Boniface.

This must have felt like uncovering buried treasure when you got it back from the lab :-) What a beautiful image! Love the soft golden light!

Hello Jan.
Something like this happen to me too.
In the late seventies when i was working on my Offshore production Platform in the Northsea, I bought some slidefilms, for a cheap price, but they where over the year,
Result was 'Bad' looking slides, but still I safed some of it, as it was 'very Apart', seeing it.
You shows here, it still worth to keep them as treasure.
Cheers, Jan

Interesting comp Jan..and after five years in-camera!
With the hot colors, I imagine this the micro second of flash from a nearby nuclear strike/explosion. Pray that never happens of course..

An interesting effect Jan, perhaps the time in camera had something to do with the mood.
