whenever I see gifs from the colourized version of “It’s A Wonderful Life” (or any B&W film for that matter) I get really angry.

It was meant to be seen in B&W….

and what’s worse is knowing that Jimmy HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATED colourizing of B&W movies.

HOW ARE PEOPLE THAT DISRESPECTFUL…

HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW?!

A bit more grain than I would like but I was using 400 speed film for this long exposure so now I know to use much lower speed film from now on. Learning more and more about film!
