Shooting Expired Ektachrome

Fall 2012 Photo Walk with my Canon T60 shooting Kodak Ektachrome 400HC color slide film (expired 01/1994).

Guessing that this film was stored in a sock drawer at various temperatures throughout the years. Some color shift and lots of added grain. Expired film - Best to over expose your shots 1 f-stop for every decade the film has aged.

Below: More images from the same roll of expired Ektachrome.
