Basset hound on exposed and expired 1970's unknown film
Camera : Unknown
Film : Unknown (help!) 1970s
Developer: Tetenal Colortec C-41
Why did I not make a note of the film?! Over-enthusiasm will be my downfall.
Can you work out what it might be from this?
Bought in a job lot of random rolls of exposed films, removed from cameras that I’m assuming some house-clearance type guys pulled out when eBaying the cameras. Some have dates they expired on, some don’t.
All I can work out is judging by the clothes it was shot in the 1970s on some panoramic medium format Hasselblad Xpan style camera.
I wish I had more information to share. 😬
I get properly excited by old rolls of exposed film. You don’t know what’s on them, you don’t know how time and temperature have effected them.
There always an initial I take of breath pulling the developed film from the roll - on a good day it would be a slice of 1960s or 1970s life, people and fashion. On a bad day it’s images from someone who took 12 shots of the same boat 😬 or worse a completely duff film. I’ve yet to see any genitals on old exposed film but if I ever do you will be the first to see...
In the case of this film I simply muttered ‘f*cking dogs*. Not that I dislike dogs, I have a lanky greyhound lying by my side right now, but hardly interesting subject matter I thought.
Initially I only thought one shot came out - turns out a few more did!
