May 11th, with a few rolls ready to post

Posted by on May 12, 2015 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Well, the film has been developed, scanned and delivered to my PO box! One of the rolls did not turn up any images or lost memories, none, nada, zip. I bought the camera because there was a roll of Advantix film loaded. I was not able to tell if here roll had been shot at all as there was not a battery in the camera. So, I purchased it and brought it home. Sometimes I have batteries for these cameras because I keep them all. I was able to get the camera powered on, but I had to shoot some images to get it to rewind. Well, I must have taken the only images  on that roll of film. Ya win some, and ya lose some too. Big deal, right. However, the other roll of Advantix film had a lot of images on it! Something, time, age, light exposure, etc had dome some damage. I was able to some detail from them by converting them to black and white and using a green filter. I left some in color because there were images of a rainbow and you can see the damaged film. There are people in these whom are recognizable which always makes me happy. I only wish that more people would see them with hopes of one person recognizing and wanting the images. Here are those pictures. Being retired Army, these are great shots and I wish the owner could be found.Chopper pix (1 of 25) Chopper pix (2 of 25) Chopper pix (3 of 25) Chopper pix (4 of 25) Chopper pix (5 of 25) Chopper pix (6 of 25) Chopper pix (7 of 25) Chopper pix (8 of 25) Chopper pix (9 of 25) Chopper pix (10 of 25) Chopper pix (11 of 25) Chopper pix (12 of 25) Chopper pix (13 of 25) Chopper pix (14 of 25) Chopper pix (15 of 25) Chopper pix (16 of 25) Chopper pix (17 of 25) Chopper pix (18 of 25) Chopper pix (19 of 25) Chopper pix (20 of 25) Chopper pix (21 of 25) Chopper pix (22 of 25) Chopper pix (23 of 25) Chopper pix (24 of 25) Chopper pix (25 of 25)

 

Now, the older the film, the higher the cool factor, right? I still have not found anything older than the two images from 1959, but these are definitly older than the previous ones in this post. 2 rolls of Kodak 126 film. One with 11 images and one with 5 images. Again, it’s a shame that these have been lost, discarded and left to fade away. Until now! So, here are all the images from the Kodak 126 rolls. Some of these were really faint and faded. The developing folks did a great job, but old film is a gamble. I had to do a little work in LR for these but at least there is some detail. Looks like these were some fun times!
