For them what likes mistakes: a sesqui-found-photo
Well, sesqui- may not be the right prefix. How about semi-found?
I just got a Rollei Prego 125. Nice camera. Inside it was a roll that
seemed only to have had a couple of pictures taken on it. Well, I
used it to the end and had it developed. It appears the film was
indeed used once already, right to the end and then exposed to heat
and/or light, perhaps in a car window . . . I don't know. The film
canister must have sat in the light for a long time.
Here is the result of one of my pictures on that roll. A couple of
days ago, I took the picture of the two Lauras acting up for my
camera. It would have been a lovely picture, but little did I know
that it was over a landscape picture someone else had taken. The
original owner shot their picture turned one way while I shot mine
turned the other. Turning one, I have made two separate images from
the scan I got from my local WalMart.
The film was "Superdrug 100." The film edges are so badly wasted by
that purple haze that you see that I cannot read any edge markings, so
I don't know who made the film originally. Superdrug is a chain in
Britain -- perhaps someone remembers their in-house brand of film.
