I take a lot of photos.
(Like maybe even too many, I guess…)
I found a roll of film in the M2 the other day, and I couldn’t even remember what it was, where it was from, or what ISO I shot it at.
It was like my own little mini-time capsule of my own negatives!
Fortunately I am super cautious whenever I open a camera these days; I had wound it completely back into the bulk-loaded canister, so I couldn’t even examine the film itself.
I threw it in the changing bag, opened it up, cut off a small piece of leader, and wound it on the spool. Once the developing tank was loaded, I pulled the leader out, and recognized it as Double-X. I knew I was only shooting it at ISO 200, so the formuler’ was easy from there…
Turns out the roll was from about a month ago. We had taken the kids to cycle camp, and had a chance to hit the park for some strolling and ice cream…
Looking through these was a pleasant surprise.
