After a Long Absence, the Film is Starting to Roll In

The first two rolls of film that I have developed in a long, long time have finally shown up. The film was old, 10+ years and were found in the bottom of an old moving box. One roll was half exposed from about 15 years ago and the other was still in its packaging.

I had very low expectations for the rolls of film, especially the one that was already half exposed (18 of 36 frames had been shot). The film was not sitting in the most protective environment, but in the end it was a pleasant surprise to see that both rolls were developed without too many problems.

The film was shot in an old Olympus Stylus point and shoot. Next week I’m hopping to get back my first couple of rolls back from my first outing with the Canonet QL17. Until then here are the Olympus Stylus photos:

As far as the film is concerned, I was happy with the color and grain and have bought some fresh rolls to run through the QL17.
