This is not how my evening was supposed to go.
I should've paid attention to the signs. I was too tired, and spilled the developer. Still, I went ahead.
I'd started this roll of film last year and just finished it today. It'd spent so much time in the camera that it didn't want to get in the reel.
It was a hard fight that went on for over 45 minutes, started on my desk and ended on the bathroom floor. Never before had I given up a roll.
As I opened the changing bag, I saw the result of my hard work: exposed, wrinkled and useless film. I really wanted to see those images. They are gone now.
Sometimes I wonder.
