The Colorado Street Bridge was built in 1913 crossing the Arroyo Seco Canyon in Pasadena, California. It is 150 feet high and spans almost 1500 feet. This photograph was shot on color negative film and processed in color positive film chemistry--this is known as cross processing. Cross processing is the deliberate processing of photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film. As particular chemical solutions are optimized for specific kinds of film, you will get unpredictable and interesting results when they are combined differently. Because of the surreal results cross processing creates I thought it would work great for this landscape. The colors get wrapped and changed, and the contrast is very high with this effect. The film I used was Kodak 160 NC that had expired 7 years ago adding to the crazy colors.
