The story of how this shot came to be is pretty funny; kinda OCD with a dash of irony.

I was so excited when I got the Minolta in the mail. So excited and so very broke. No cash for film; no patience for wait. Luckily, I had a new-ish roll of Kodak Ultramax 400 in my Blackbird Fly; shot only 6 frames. At the time, the Blackbird was getting on my last nerves. It’s an impractical camera; very restrictive; and for what it is, too damn expensive.

So carefully, I rewound the film, took it out the Blackbird and loaded it into the Minolta. I covered the lens and took eight shots in the dark. 8: 6 for the 6 frames already exposed, and 2 just in case; just in case, because I didn’t want a surprise double-exposure.

When I got the roll back from the lab two days ago, there were 28 frames, instead of 36: 1 from the Blackbird, 1 a double-exposure, and the rest from the Minolta. Funny innit?
