Back to 9/11 – Ground Zero on Fuji Superia 800

I remember wondering were the planes out of control? What the heck is happening?

The only film available (where I live anyway) at that time was Fujicolor Superia Xtra. If I remember correctly, you could get it in… Continue reading My Life in Fujicolor
