"(...) The circulatory system processes 20 liters of blood per day through capillary filtration, which removes plasma while leaving the blood cells. Approximately 17 litres of the filtered plasma are reabsorbed directly into the blood vessels, while the remaining 3 litres remain in the interstitial fluid. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to provide a route by which these excess 3 litres per day can be returned to the blood. The same thing takes place in developing trays - the liquid that produces images gradually decreases, the contrast blurs, and the exposure time increases. The photographer is processing photography." (2013)
