Today’s entry: I can’t read or speak German, but I can drink it. OR Foreign Film Night!

My friend Jeannette presented me with this roll of film she found at the local thrift shop.

It looks German to me, so I decided to take it with me to Oktoberfest.

First off, I know nothing about this film’s life to this point – how old it is, if it’s expired, if it was stored in the refrigerator or on the dashboard of someone’s car.

Secondly, taking a roll of 2oo speed film to a poorly lit night-time event filled with dancing, tube sausages and copious amounts of beer is not one of my better ideas.

What?  bring a flash you say?  Hey, I’m already carrying around my tank of a film camera, I don’t need an additional strobe interfering with my carrying around my tank of beer!

Dancing, drinking and long exposures equals a recipe for disaster!  Poor little roll of film.

Let’s see what, if anything, turns out!

    Ich spreche Deutsch, obwohl nicht so gut. Ich hatte zwei Jahre in der Schule. So did you get any pics of the Saint Pauli Girl or did you dress up like her again? Waiting for the disaster pics.
