Film ends...

Oh yes, you know what I'm talking about as soon as you see it. The very first frame on a strip of film will usually either be a half image that otherwise would be your best snap ever, or it will be something like the one below. Obviously I loaded one of the rangefinders inside my sons car this day and lost count of the clicks. 

The last few frames on a strip will usually be something fired off towards nothing, just to finish off the thing to wet it into a light tight tank.
Sometimes something interesting shows up just out of the blue, and you easily manage to run out of film to soon. When you finally have reloaded you can be quite sure the opportunity is long gone.

VW Polo, as seen from down below on the inside. Not the most interesting of sights to see on a friday night, me thinks.

That's how it is, a film wasters life. 
There's lots of great fun in between, though!

P.S Please don't start the old pixelator vs filmwaster discussion because of this! Let's face it; if we did not have film we would never have these very special frames around to study. It's always good for something, I have to think...

  1. My favorite first thing to shoot is the miniblinds in my office, where I generally have loaded the film. I have dozens of photos of them!

    1. Haha Jim. I know what you're talking about.
      I got loads of snaps of my feet, for some odd reason.
      I would love to be able to make a bit better use of the ends of the films, so that might be a focus area for me in the time to come :)
      Thank you very much for the comment mate!
