Photos will be here.
When they’re almost empty
Thinking about it, maybe I will shoot another roll through the Agfa after checking the distance scale and rangefinder. The 2nd roll (last shot above) was cheap Kodak film expired by almost 20 years, my chems were getting pretty worn out, and most of the shots were on the same foggy, hazy morning. As it stands, the case is worth more than the camera so I have almost nothing — a roll of film & processing — to lose.
She went away
Leaving sea ice and sadness
She looks like a marmoset
And she knows how to use it
A short, sad, sick poem I wrote a long time ago…
I saw a little turtle
But he was turtle dead
He had the plastic from a six pack
Around his turtle head
They are both disasters.
It wasn’t all lameness yesterday.
Some more images from the first roll (Lomo Earl Grey B&W 100). The light leak caused me to do some imaginative crops.
I’ll post some color after I scan the 2nd roll. I had it processed at the drug store (rhymes with gall spleens) and specified develop-only and don’t cut the negatives. I got prints and mangled negatives. Their machine sliced right through the middle of some of the frames. They didn’t charge me but I think I’m done with them — it’s not cheap, it’s usually more like a day than the advertised hour, the employees know nothing except how to work the machine, and they can’t follow simple instructions. It was just a test roll but it could’ve been Bigfoot riding Nessie to meet Elvis’s space ship.
14 August 2015 Update
Second roll is expired Fuji 200 film. Fewer bad frames but it still leaks a bit. I’ll use it as a test for my new and improved light seal checker.
