The CMYK Camera!

my new toy

Last week, my friend Cynthia passed along this cheap "Time-Style" 35mm camera. I realized as I photographed it that is has a Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Black or CMYK color scheme! Hard to see, but the lens cap reassuringly says "camera.'
I loaded the camera up with some really ancient Tri-X Pan -- from the early 1970s, when it came in 20-exposure rolls. Talk about giving it handicap to start. However, I wanted some real crappiness. And I got it. I developed the film in Diafine, and here are few results from a lunch-hour at work and a few minutes around the house.
