Amite must have manufactured a lot of farm equipment back in the day, I’ve seen a lot of junk with the town’s name on it–once on an episode of American Pickers.

I got my 110 cartridge film back from Dwayne’s last week and was pretty disappointed, the film is not fully advancing, resulting in a lot of half-assed double exposures. For some reason it seems to happen more with the B&W cartridges, which is a shame because it makes beautiful prints. I don’t think it’s the camera, when I open and close it with the door open, the little gear that advances the film turns properly. It almost feels like the cartridge is jammed in there too tightly, it’s very stiff when it’s loaded. I’m sure I can fix it if I fiddle with it, but it’s frustrating that I’ll have to spend $20 on buying film and getting it developed, and waiting 2 weeks for Dwayne’s to develop it and mail it back, before I even know if it worked. Anyone got any experience with 110 film and/or cameras?

Pink Slim Dress: expired Lomography 100 35mm color negative

I got a couple of free rolls of this film when I bought my Lomo LC-A+, I used one of them right away but sort of forgot about the other one. Probably because I prefer 400 speed film; if I use 100 it’s usually because I want to specifically shoot Kodak Ektar, which doesn’t come in higher speeds (fine grain is one their touted characteristics). A few weeks ago I kind of shrugged and decided to use it. The color is more off than I would have thought for film that’s only about a year past the sell-by date, but that’s not a complaint. I like it.
