Something to show

I’ve recently begun to retry my hand at film photography, abandoned five years ago in favor of digital autofocus. With a half dozen rolls of fresh unseen negatives in hand I’ve been searching for a way to scan the images. Walked into the Salvation Army on Saturday and saw a Kodak iPhone scanner made entirely of cardboard, with a cardboard price: $10. Walked out with it.

After scanning a roll I wrote to a photographer buddy: Predictably, the scans are awful; unexpectedly, I LOVE THEM!” Presented here are some unlikely favorites. Pixel-peeking is discouraged.

If I can get six ok scans out of every roll I’ll be one delighted photographer.
