Winter 2005, Izhevsk, Udmurtia, Russia

Minus 25 degrees centigrade. People trudging and steaming through the traffic, heading home or for the market. Everything covered in snow. The camera is clicking and I fear it might freeze but it doesn't!

Self processed ORWO reverse material, expired for years, hence these pale colours. Extreme "ORWO worms" appear because I bathed it in too hot developer (regular temperature 38 Centigrades is too hot for the delicate material ...)

Hot tip: squint your eyes ... and the picture will become remarkably distinct!
