Artifact from the past: Eerie photo edition

Eerie photograph by Kurt Weston, who happens to be blind. You can read more about him at the above link, but I’m posting this because of the objects the model is holding up.

Youngsters, who are deep into digital photography and who may have never been in a darkroom probably will not recognize them as stainless steel developing reels for 35mm film.

I had many a late night and frantic moment rolling Tri-X ( Kodak’s high-speed black and white photographic film) on these. I’m surprised that you can still purchase these.
