Fragile Film

December 04, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I love film, but unfortunately it's more of a luxury these days.  It's also quite fragile and testy.  Let me just tell you a little story...  

 

So there I was, anxiously rewinding the film in my little toy camera.  My heart was fluttering with excitement as I was finally going to get this film developed.  Well, my little anxious heart got ahead of my little flustered brain and I ended up ruining the film as I opened up the back of the camera only to find the film staring right back at me.  Boom!  Light doesn't waste time.  Those babies were gone.   I was devastated.  Yes, I could have tried to close it back and try again, perhaps salvaging some of the exposures...but that's just too simple folks.  I just watched it all go sour in front of me as I rolled it up in the light.  Don't ask me what I was thinking...I clearly was not.  I suppose I was just so incredibly perturbed that I didn't even want to try saving anything and didn't think of it in my moment of horror.   

...learning from my mistakes and moving forward...

 

Thankfully, I had another roll of film ready to go in my AE1.  I was, of course, determined not to let these darling little photos go and die on me.  I put on my renewed mind and went to work.  Miraculously, the film rolled up quite nicely, so I sent her off to be developed that evening...ahhh, I could breathe again.
 

So there ya have it folks...
Film: Sensitive and fragile, but with a little care she produces brilliance.

 

 

As for now, I'll leave you with some of the shots from the AE1.  (Most of them from almost a year ago).
