Re: Stupid things I did with my Nikon FE 35mm film camera.

I was attending a funeral reception, after the main event, and had been taking pictures of the various family members when the camera battery died on my FE & consequently locked up with the shutter open. Instead of putting it in manual mode, I opened the back... Even in very dim light, not a wise move, if you want to save any of the photos near that section of film. What a waste, I could have just stayed home, but mourned in private?

Your camera battery died at a funeral, I'm guessing there was no pun intended there ?

Mind you that reminds me of an occasion when a person won a box of multigrade paper in a camera club meeting. She then took the paper out of the box to see what it looked like !
