    A Humbling Experience...

    I went to one of my favorite haunts last evening to do some shooting. Then finished up the roll tonight in the studio. Then opened the magazine to remove the roll of film. And found out there was no film inside. I can honestly say that in 7 or 8 years using this equipment, I have never done that before. I have not done much shooting this summer since returning from Photostock, but jeez, I didn't think I was THAT rusty!!!

    You mean this is the first time the "missing film trick" bit you? Consider yourself very fortunate...

    Don't feel bad, my last roll of 120 I loaded backward. I loaded 4 or 5 backs at the same time, I'm sure they're all backward. I haven't had the heart to look.

    Done it. Shot 4 or 5 empty holders on one of the best days at the Great Salt Lake I have ever had. All I could do was laugh. The best part was that although I didn't have the negatives, and will always wish I did, I still had a great experience. Really illustrated for me that a big part of what I do is for the love of the work.
    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    I have in the past shot a whole roll with my seldom used Contax 11 with the lens cap on.

    I can say i shot with a lens cap on my Bronie 645, but my wife Anne has shot a role on her OM40 which never really wound on.

    It just creeps up on you like that. Must be time for retirement. Now if you had come down to the "home" in Ohio for the gathering with Bill and Joe, we had daily exercises in loading film, removing lens caps, zipping your fly, all the important stuff. Next year will be better for you. Trust me I was in sales. See you next summer.

    Been there done that. It's even worse when you remove the film from the camera and then can't find it later. I just know there are three rolls of 120 somewhere with some great latent images on them...
