Timeless Daytona


Boxes of expired film have been sitting in a box in my closet for years. I have been waiting for an opportunity to put the film to a test, and with a credential for this year’s Daytona 500 and no assignment, it seemed like the perfect time to break out the expired film and take a risk. I had no idea once I processed film if I would even get anything usable, but my hope was to get images that echoed the timelessness of Daytona and it’s fanbase. Photographers have it easy these days with digital, but the ability to hold the images and have a tangible experience with photography was one of the best feelings I’ve had in a while. Here’s a collection of some of my favorite frames.
