Forgotten Film Roll

How many times has this happened to you?

You get a new camera you can’t WAIT to use, quickly run a roll of film through it and just as quickly get it developed. It’s now scanned on the computer and ready for editing and then

it’s sits there and waits

and waits

and waits

for you

to edit


I recently found a monumentally cool roll of film whose fate was just that until the other day. This summer I got a well-loved Imperial Satellite II camera. It’s a 127 format camera similar in size and shape to the Brownie Bullet. The recently unearthed roll featured scenes from my favorite surfing beach this past summer. I am totally in LOVE with the results from this camera but they might be an acquired taste for some. I purposely didn’t clean the lens or insides of the camera so that I could keep that dirty retro-look. The film advance looked as though it may have slipped up with every other turn of the knob because there are a couple unintentional doubles on the roll that turned out really well. The overlapping lines and soft focus really makes me think of old movie stills. I love it and hope you do too.
