Found some film! Ummm... developed some film! Finally

I have had some B&W 400 ISO film laying around the house for awhile, staring at me, exposed and undeveloped. And when I say awhile, I mean awhile. Like this-is-embarrassing-get-it-out-of-my-sight long time. I wasn't sure what the pictures were from, and I kind of wanted to just TOSS IT as to avoid the whole "do I get it developed and then what.. get a darkroom? scan it? " thing. I kind of suspected it might be from when we went to Cambodia 2004 so I never threw it out. We brought our 2 megapixel camera when we went to Cambodia and those pictures are shit, because it was a 2 megapixel point and shoot. My color photos from my film camera turned out like shit, because I never learned to take great color photos with film in school and also because I had a commercial lab do the prints. But I suspected that I took some B&W, and I thought this roll might be it. Last week I found a place in the city that still develops B&W film, and will also scan it. Jackpot! pictures of Angkor what that can actually-gasp-be printed on 8x10 paper and not look like ca-ca. yeah! I am so excited!!

w00t! Finally some Cambodia pictures that don't suck ass!!! I can't tell you how frustrating it has been to try to polish the turd that was our crap digital pics :)

We could see the jewel within the crap digi images mind you, but the quality of the camera was just too damn low to make it viable for much.

Now, mind you, this doesn't mean we don't have to go back to re-shoot the temples... that is a definite must ;)
