The “Lost Roll” of Film Adventure
This is the story of my second roll of film through the 1913 Kodak No.1. I roll I shot on Pinhole Day (although it was not a pinhole). I was still testing the camera so I carried it along…..You can see some results from my first roll of film here.
I mailed my second roll, Ilford Ortho Plus (ISO 80) on April 28th and waited…..and waited……and waited. By the end of May I was beginning to worry so I contacted them. Well, you can read the correspondence at the end, I want to move on to the photos. But it suffices to say that it took them 3+ months to find my film and they returned it with no acknowledgment of the problems and no apologies. So They’ve lost my business, permanently. Oh, I’ll use their film, but I won’t send it to them for processing.
Anyway, let’s move on……….Ans start with my Favorite Crucifix:
This was the original Cemetery for Denver. And it was segregated by religion and race. This was the Orthodox Section:
Another favorite Monument above……
I forget what the tree trunk symbolizes, but it is a XXXXXX
A view of the larger Cemetery Area………….above. There is another shot taken at another location. So I will show that separately in a couple of days…….
Now for the horror of my former Film Lab. Click on the image to enlarge and read:
Use Ilford Labs US at your own risk. What I really resent is the lack of an Apology or any acknowledgment of a problem when they finally did find my film.
I’ll stick with OldSchoolLabs. They do 90% of my work (we develop the other 10% ourselves) ……..I can certainly endorse them.
