i’ve long had an affinity for analog design practices, so dabbling in the non-digital side of photography was only a matter of time. after a less-than-sober ebay purchase, i had a Minolta XG-7 on my hands.
after developing my first rolls, it was apparent that it’s seals were corroded, and there was considerable light leaking in (as you’ll see). a reasonable punishment for buying a camera drunk at 2am and not inspecting it before shooting. i’ve since fixed it, but i don’t think the accidental exposure ruins the photos effected. it just adds some character.
so far, my experience with film has been wonderful, and it’s seen my digital SLR gathering more & more dust these days.
this is the last photo i developed of my grandmother before she passed away. it’s nice to have something tangible to hold on to.
