When those silver grains are bleached out of the
emulsion, the blobs of dye left behind take the form
of the silver grain that vanished.  Maybe the dye will

In a print what we perceive as grain is actually the
space between the grains.  At that point, there's no
practical difference real grain and color ghost grain.
