Decay & Melancholy: Addiction to the Black Magic Pack

Not so long ago, a very kind friend of mine gave me one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever received in my life.  I’m not exaggerating in the least either.  It was a pack of extremely expired Time-Zero film.  Those who work with expired films know that getting good results can be a gamble.  In this case, I wagered and won.  I have never loved a pack of film so much!  While I’m grateful that I had a pack like this to shoot, I’m left wanting another black magic pack just like the one I had.  It’s a craving that can’t every be satisfied, though, as there is no more of the stuff to be had.
