Bike and ,,,,, something

Of course you like to know how I did this snap eh?

First you take your old Kodak Retinette 1a camera from - way back when. Well, when i was born actually. Or you could a SLR - like I know remember I did. Load it with old Kodak Copy film and set the exposure to one second and an appropriate aperture - easy when the film you are using is about 3-5asa.

Point the camera and shoot. What at is up to you. Then develop film in Multigrade developer for about 2 and a half minutes. Then see if there is anything on the neg and shine a light through that in the enlarger onto lithable paper and dunk that in Lith developer - and, if you want a special bit, give the paper a flash if the neg is a bit dense - which this was!

Viola, you have a mess. Part of my Bike series. Possibly.
