Yesterday I pulled my old Nikon f50 off my bookshelf and put it back in my camera bag. That’s not a typo: the f50 is my the film SLR my parents bought me on my 18th birthday, and it’s hasn’t seen much love since I bought my first dSLR in 2006. There was a mystery roll of Koda Portra 400NC in there which I had to use up.
I then had to promptly develop them first thing this morning because I couldn’t wait to see the 10 photos I snapped off last night. The other 26 were irrelevant; I had to know only about the ones I remembered taking. Patience is a virtue indeed.
Next roll: Fujifilm Provia 400f slide film. Now THAT will require patience since most labs in town ship theirs off now.
