you never know

Film. Kodak Ektar 100.

Something happened when my film was processed, and those two red lines appeared on every shot from this roll….

Just another lesson that with film, you never know.

You never know what you will get.

It’s an element of surprise, really.  But sometimes you have to embrace things that are less than perfect.   Isn’t that just what life is all about?

    The same thing happened to me with a roll of film from my honeymoon, there were two thin red lines very similar to yours. Kind of annoying but it also gives it some character :)ReplyCancel

    Your pictures are beautiful even with the red lines. The elements in your photos are so nice that I hardly noticed the lines. I truly enjoy your work.ReplyCancel

    Call me weird, but I kind of like those two lines 😉
    I’m a big fan of your photography!

    Red lines? What red lines? LOL! I agree – film shooting is all about the surprise. I still like the shos with the lines & good for you for giving film the time of day; once the “diggy” age arrived, I never looked back :-)ReplyCancel

    These are so pretty! Still, it’s pretty annoying to find that you spent all that time and the roll didn’t turn out like you expected. A gamble it is…ReplyCancel

    […] And yes, this these images are from the same roll of film as this. […]ReplyCancel

    If these were processed in a photolab at a convenience store such as CVS or Walgreens, the lines are from their photomachine and not your actual film. I work in a photolab and we have that problem a lot. It is something to do with the chemicals not being balanced properly.ReplyCancel
