Ancient Film

I scored a major find last month, of about 100 rolls of expired film in both 35mm and 120 format. Ever since I shot my Savannah Monitor some years ago with expired film, I've been in love the unpredictable nature of it. So you can only imagine how happy I was to get my paws on this much.
Took a roll of ISO 200 film out in my Nikon F3HP to a local marina and shot away. Check out the grain on this image. More like ISO 3200. That's what I love about expired film, you never quite know what you are going to get from it.

So I decided that since the last time I had been camping was in the early 90s, that I was overdue for another round of self-inflicted pain. Grabbing a spot, I pre-registered on a Monday, for the following weekend. 
So to punish my mis-placed optimism, it rained non-stop the entire week, stopping only enough to get this picture, and set up tent. After that, it poured, and in some places, hailed.
I was wet, and cold, and didn't sleep well because the wildlife woke up at 4.00am and started singing.
I'm ready to do it again!
