I wake up and head to the bathroom. Out the window, I notice that the sun is rising through the haze so that it is a red and comfortable to look at. "I wonder if there's enough light to take a decent picture," I say to myself. So I grab the camera, put the batteries in (I've started taking the batteries out when I'm not using the camera, in order to lengthen their life), come upstairs, take a reading (good), grab film, insert film in camera, shoot half a roll. I'm satisfied that at least a couple of the pictures will turn out well.

I head back downstairs to take the batteries out and put the camera away. I sit down, put the camera in my lap, and open up the back.


Lesson learned, I guess. Like that time I thought I had the film loaded properly, shot a whole roll, and then found out that I did not in fact have the film loaded properly so that none of the pictures actually got put onto the film.

If you didn't already trash the film, you probably only lost like 3-5 shots. The whole roll is not lost.

Well, fuck. Yes, I already trashed the film. Now I feel like even more of a doofus. :-)
