    It says a lot about you.
    Probably, if they were not standing right there or nearby or conveniently contactable when the items were discovered... but I'm not sure what you think that says. There is something called "personal responsibility" which should include collecting one's personal items before selling a camera or car or house or boat or motorhome or mountain cabin...

    hi brian

    the OP was intouch with the seller, and maybe it would have been better
    if he didn't process the film and offer her up the negatives or prints ...
    unfortunately he processed it already .. but the seller
    was nearby ....

    after a few days thinking about it,
    i spoke to hastily ...
    rather than throw the film out i suggest
    MAIL her back the negatives with a note saying that
    knowing it was difficult to have b/w film processed i had them processed ...
    i only suggested that he throw it out after the seller expressed no interest
    in it, ( spam filter ? ) ... after repeated attempts by the OP.

    It says you don't care about other people much. And YOUR personal responsibility when finding something that someone accidentally left behind is to return it. Because we all fuck up. We all forget things. We all accidentally leave things behind in different places we go and we ALL would hope that someone would be nice enough to return them.

    And when you don't, it says something about you.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    ... yes, as I indicated: within reasonable limits. As far as going to extraordinary measures, I'll leave that for some saint... whoever he may be. (insert "halo" smilie here)

    Hi John. I'm not criticizing the OPs judgement or decision, and I didn't read your postings ad doing so either. He's a big boy and can figure out his own ethics without having judgement cast upon him. As for me: One time I returned found film it worked out to everyone's happiness. The other time.. not so much. Experience has shown me that "doing good" can sometimes cause someone else pain.

    Developing film inside of cameras privately bought

    While legally the film may belong to the buyer, I suspect copyright stays with the original photographer.

    Ethically, if I had contact info for the owner, I'd return it undeveloped.

    As a coincidence I happen to have a roll of undeveloped film, from a prior owner, now.

    I discovered the film in a camera that I have owned for over 25 years. (I can procrastinate with the best of them.)

    I probably purchased the camera at a flea market in the early to mid 80's. While curious as to what might be on there, and whether or not the old B&W film still holds anything, I think I will just stick the exposed band on it, and leave it for display that way.
