Found Photo Fun

Filed under: Misc. — Tags: — Frank @ 9:30 PM

This afternoon, I was rummaging through some random photo stuff and I came to a 4×5 negative that I am certain I did not make. Thus, call it ‘found film’.

This discovery reminded me that I had several strips of 35 mm film sitting on the shelf in the garage. I vaguely remember finding this film in a paper safe* I purchased at a tag sale… More ‘found film’.

The 35 mm film is Kodak TMax 400, first produced in 1986 and still made today. One of the 35 mm frames (which was uninteresting and thus not shown here) contained a bit more of the ambulance shown in the second photo (below). This frame suggests that the photo was made in Providence, although one can only see “idence”.

I have no clue as to the age of the 4×5 negative or where it was made..

I washed most (some?) of the accumulated dust off the 35 mm film and scanned it all. I present the 4×5 image and about half of the 35 mm frames here for your entertainment!
