Dishwashed Film

This morning while doing some of my daily online reading before I begin work, I learned of a new use for a dishwasher: developing film! Who knew! I love alternative processes and have a few books on the subject; but never would have thought of this before!

Photographer Tom Welland’s Dishwashed Film is very dream-like and reminds me of a combination of cross processing film and Polaroids. Welland says he knows they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea… but I can tell you that I am definitely loving them.  (More can be seen on his Flickr page)

It just so happens that we have an older dishwasher at our condo that we are going to replace when the kitchen gets renovated. Hmm, looks like that dishwasher may be good for something now.  😉
