We got film -- and I'm hooked
Nov 24, 2009


Well after not loading my first roll of film and finding some old expired film in my friend's fridge when I discovered that I couldn't buy any film in my village, I went out on the first sunny day we have had in November and shot my first roll of film since I was about 14.

I took it in for developing today ( $25 for 72 exposures including low res scanning).

The film is bad, it doesn't hold contrasts and it was fogged in several places. However I love it anyway. I can't say why but I am super excited with it all.

In the next post are some unprocessed shots.

All taken with my 1955 M3 with 1958 50 summilux.

The camera shop said I was stupid to have used the old film, but the alternative was to miss the only sunny day in November so far.

Happiness - I am always happy (even now).
