A further note for photographic nuts, nerds and pixel-peepers, about the 35mm film used in my photos from the 1981 poetry launch party in Newtown, Sydney:
This description comes from Kodak publication No. P-255, copyright 1985:
…And with grain fine enough to slice an over-ripe tomato. Sadly, Kodak stopped making it in the mid-1980s. The “extended red sensitivity” gives dark skies and very pale lips and noses and tomatoes.
Wikipedia is worth consulting, as usual: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technical_Pan
Correction: the date was probably Saturday 12 March, 1983. The film is no longer made. Boo-hoo! One more wonderful thing lost forever.
