Me too, and it made me laugh to think of what it did to me a couple months ago. I made a darkroom print using a homemade easel and there was a funny dark area in the upper corner of the print. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what caused it ( filter ring, easel, homemade negative carrier, what could it be?... ) and finally looked at the negative and saw that it was in there the frame. Then at last I looked in my notebook and it said I was worried about flare and had made a second picture shading the lens with my hand!
