Not long ago, a reader sent me a box of expired film he’d accumulated. In the box was a disposable camera, a Kodak Weekend, which is sealed in plastic to protect against weather.
This camera had no shots left on it — what images could be in this camera? I had a roll of color film ready to go to the processor’s anyway, so I put this in the order just to see what turned out. What came back was the snowboarding trip of a few friends.
The film was not stored well over however many years, so the images are color-shifted, grainy, and faint. Here are more of the best of these images. Click on any image to see it larger.
At the end of the roll there were shots in someone’s car of the crew. Given that this camera had no flash, the photographer was pressing the shutter and hoping for the best. Click on any image to see it larger.
It’s always fun to develop found film to see what you get.
