The other day I found this exposed roll of film in a junk drawer. Just regular Kodak Tri-X but it looked about 25 years old. Sure enough when I developed it they were pictures that my mom took in 1986! Imagine that! Film that was exposed 26 years ago can be developed just like they were taken yesterday. This is why film is infinitely better than digital.
This is a photo of my father at an air show in upstate New York. He was my age now. What’s really amazing is how this film started in New York, moved to a few places in Florida, then moved to a number of places in Massachusetts and ended up in a junk drawer in my house. I can;t wait til the darkroom at school opens up so I can print this. My scanner isn’t all that good.
