Found Film: The Smith Family Celebrates Easter

Last week we met the “Smith” family (as I’ve decided to name them), celebrating Christmas in a series of moments captured on Kodacolor-X film – manufactured between 1963 and 1972 – on an unknown camera.  This week it appears they’ve … Continue reading

Found Film: The Smith Family Celebrates Christmas

I have no idea who this family is, but now that I have developed a bunch of their pictures,  I’ve gotten to know them a bit and it only seems appropriate to give them a name.  I’m calling them the … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Santa Fe Porsche Show

This week’s roll of found film came to me from “Mike” – a collector of old slides who was giving up on a “found film” hobby, he sent me a half dozen or so rolls and acknowledged there was a … Continue reading

Found Film: 1949 Chevy

This week’s roll of “found film” comes from a Kodak Six-16 Brownie Junior, made between 1934 and 1942.  From a technology standpoint, it’s virtually indistinguishable from a Brownie Target Six-16, made between 1946 and 1951.  Given the pace of technology … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: New Year’s Road Trip 1994

…and just like that, we go from “class”…to a little bit crass.  After weeks of posting historically meaningful post-war photos that were rescued from oblivion, we have a roll of pictures that looks like it was snapped on a three-day … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Yellowstone Part 4

Found Film Friday: Yellowstone part 3

This is the third week I’ve been posting from this set of 13 rolls of film, from in and near Yellowstone National Park….but 13 rolls is a lot of pictures!  I know not everyone is particularly enamored with these photos … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Yellowstone Part 2

Last week I posted the first installment in a series of posts in which I share images from a collection of 14 rolls of Ektachrome slide film requiring an outdated chemical process, but which I decided to develop with black … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Yellowstone, Part 1

I’d say “everybody has pictures from a trip to Yellowstone,” if I had ever been myself.  But I have previously posted a “found film” roll that featured shots from that national park.  A few weeks ago, I received 14 rolls … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Two Dim Color Rolls

With old film, conventional wisdom says it’s best to develop it in black and white chemicals, regardless whether the film was originally color film or black and white.  Apparently the different colored dyes not only break down more quickly than … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Year Round

This week’s “found film” is the last of four rolls that were found in a storage unit in Worcester, Massachusetts.  There’s not a whole lot to say about this week’s roll, other than it makes me think of how we … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Hannah’s Tenth Birthday

This week is the second of three “found film” Friday posts in which I’m sharing film that was found (by someone else) in a storage unit in Worcester, Massachusetts.  The first post, last week, was a 110 cartridge from what … Continue reading

Found Film: Hannah and her Sister

This week we have one of three rolls found (by someone else) in a storage unit in Worcester, Massachusetts.  This set of film rolls is interesting in that they are all different types of film, and thus came from different … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Laguna Beach Photowalk

After last week’s “surfing” theme, I thought it would be fun to share another roll with a seaside theme.  This one is not that old, and it came with the same batch of film as “Michelle’s” fisheye roll, and “Mike’s” … Continue reading

Found Film: Everybody’s Gone Surfing

This week’s found film has a little bit of a story to it. It was found by someone in a storage unit in Worcester, Massachusetts. I wrote them back and asked for more details, but didn’t get any. But anyhow, … Continue reading

Found Film: Seasons

This week, I thought I’d post TWO rolls of found film. One roll has suffered quite a bit from age, and the other only had a couple of usable photos on it. I’m titling this post based on the photos … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: Dress-Up Dog

This week’s roll of found film is a roll of 620 panchromatic that not much is known about, other than that it came from an estate sale near Alliance, Ohio.  I had quite a bit of trouble loading it into … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: New Baby AND a New TV!

Sometimes when I develop these “found” rolls of film I find it kind of sad that their original owners forgot to do so themselves.  This is one of those times.  The fact that I picked up these rolls on eBay … Continue reading

Found: Michelle’s Fisheye Film

It’s “Found Film” Friday, and this week’s “found” roll comes to us from the same place as last week’s roll – but appears to be from a different photographer.  Among that set of different 35mm rolls, none of which appeared … Continue reading

Found Film Friday: It Doesn’t Have to Be Old

One of the fun aspects of “found film” is the fact that it’s usually old, and developing it opens a window into a forgotten past, maybe involving forgotten people.  But this week’s roll is an oddity in that it’s not … Continue reading

Found Film Twofer: At the Beach and On the Farm

Not long ago, I bought a roll of Kodak Verichrome Pan 127 film that had been found inside an old Beacon II, a bakelite camera manufactured between 1947 and 1955 by Whitehouse Products in Brooklyn.  The seller threw in half … Continue reading
