    I think the distance you get, between shooting, and printing, is one of the reasons I shoot film. The distance allows me to view the image with fresh eyes, and expectations.

    This thread title made me smile.

    I was at a photo shoot last year with some of the members of my Darkroom Group. One of the others took a shot of the orchards at the location, and the old farmhouse in the background.

    He liked the result, so he had it enlarged to 11x14 or so.

    It was only after he looked closely at the enlargement that he noticed the guy in the corner who was clearly (very clearly!) urinating against one of the trees.

    My friend was surprised.

    Yea when shooting a rangefinder and when you develop the negs to see veiling glare in the shots with an slr I can usually use my hand as a shade in those trickier situations but i have to approximate with a rangefinder and try not to get my hand innthe shot based on viewfinder flare even with a lens shade.

    I'm thinking of having a notebook and a pencil in the camera bag to take notes of what I am thinking of and the camera's settings - empirical evidence of how you did that awesome shot could prove worthwile.

    I'm just surprised over some guesswork I did with long exposure night shots that turned out much better than expected. Still only my second ever roll of colour film that has been developed and printed, so there's always room for improvement though.

    I shoot at night with friends who are both analog and digital lovers, it's entertaining no matter what person I accompany.

    I'm almost always surprised as I've not mastered the materials I use yet and I'm also experimenting a lot, so every developing session is a journey of discovery

    Unfortunately I'm also prone to accidents, so I get many weird surprises too

    The pictures above are all accidental double exposure. The last one is still a mystery to me as it happened with a Mamiya C3 and all the other pictures on the roll are single exposures.

    Then I have a whole series of mysterious light leaks/flares that happen randomly with different cameras

    Here I opened the camera back without rewinding the film because I hadn't shot 35mm in ages and I forgot that you're supposed to rewind the film at the end, doh.

    I am often disappointed while developing old films because the image in my head is better than the one on film. I often expect great photos out of situations where I was overexcited about the light or the subject and they turn out very boring.

    Claudia:

    If those are the sorts of accidents you have, you should try for more!

    Claudia, I really enjoyed your selection of accidents, they all add to the images - however that is because the images without accident would have been also great!
