Apologies if this was already posted, but this is an interesting art project that ended up accidentally being a nearly 11 year exposure bigshock.gif .

I think it is safe to say she swamped the readout noise with that exposure.

I have some Ilford Multigrade paper here that's only about 5 years old, maybe I should give it a go!  I bought some when showing my stepdaughter (who was taking a High School photography class) how to develop 35mm film (T-MAX) in developer cans, and print using an enlarger.  It was a good reminder to me on how spoiled I am with Photoshop and DSLRs!

..... accidentally being a nearly 11 year exposure

 

I assume it isn’t an exposure of a bat hitting a baseball or a bullet piercing an apple.......

It depends on whether it was part of a six pack or a case...

 

It ended up being a cool photo, all things considered.
