Roll #27

(only one more roll!)

Well, my new job has completely consumed my entire life. I don’t have time to eat. I don’t have time to sleep. But I was invited to a dinner party this weekend, and dag nabbit, I’m going to have a tiny slice of normal life this weekend if it kills me.

Unfortunately, that might not be very interesting fodder for a roll of film, but I guarantee it’s more interesting that stacks of paperwork and hours of computer work, so that’s what you’re going to see.

If you aren’t back next week to see the results, I completely understand.

Have I ever mentioned to you that this PJ film, in its time, was supposed to be doing us a huge favor by providing us with that blank yellow space on the canister? We were supposed to write our exposure notes, in Sharpie, in that spot. That way we could easily refer to those notes when we processed the film.

Of course, back in the complicated days of film, many photographers had a system to keep track of things. Like one bag for push processing and another for normal. Or we would just write on the canister anyway, without the “luxury” of the blank space.

Maybe you don’t think this is interesting. I just thought it was a sweet little side note about product development and marketing, in the days of yore.
