In Film Photography If At First You Don't Succeed...

Two frames.  That is it.  Just two lonely frames.  Out of two rolls of film, I was able to salvage 2 frames worth.  

All the rest of the frames came out looking like the two pictures below.  

I had been sitting on 2 rolls of Ilford HP5 for the past month.  I decided to finally develop them.  After waiting a month my excitement to see what was on the rolls of film was high to say the least.  That was until I saw that none of the pictures came out.  All of them came out extremely over exposed on one side.   Of course that would be the side the sun was on.  Also I love to push film to 1600 and I got a feeling from how the photos turned out on the film that I had my camera settings at 1600 instead of 400.  I had been doing pretty good because I had not had a roll of film come out like these in about a year.  

Even though I was disappointed that out of two rolls of film I was only able to get 2 pictures, it was still awesome to see the two pictures and how they came out!  I think that is why I love film photography as much as I do.  Every now and then a roll doesn't turn out the way you want it to.  Life can be the same way.  It can throw you a curve ball.  But it doesn't mean you give up, it just means you try again and focus a little harder to get the results you are looking for.  So I can't wait to get back in my car and take the same road trip again to get those photographs that didn't turn out on these rolls.  If at first you don't succeed, dont give up!  Go shoot some more film!  

PS - Just make sure the iso isn't at 1600 in broad daylight. ~ @RoyceOnTheRadio
