One of the reasons I enjoy making photographs with film is never knowing what I’ll get. The film chemical kits I use to process my colour and slide films are able to process 8 rolls before the chemicals themselves are exhausted. After the solutions have been mixed, they also have a ‘best used by’ date and don’t take well to being stored long term.
I mainly shoot B&W so when I do shoot colour, I store it in the freezer until I have enough rolls to warrant a couple of nights of developing. This is the unexpected nature I was referring to, often the film will have been sat there for a couple of months and I’ll have forgotten what and where I shot.
This is one of those rolls, taken back in February, walking around a much colder, downtown Altoona.
