2. Where was this photo taken?
Somewhere in Europe
3. Who took this photo?
4. What are we looking at here?
5. How does this old photo make you feel?
6. Is this what you expected to see?
Not at all. This was a roll of 120 film in a 10 or 12 shot back on my Speed Graphic. There were four shots on the roll that were salvageable. All appear to have been taken with the camera lying on my lap. With so few shots on a roll I would not have wasted them this way. As I recall the film holder had some problems advancing. I suspect that I thought that I wasn't advancing the film and repeatedly pulled the lever and fired the shutter. Obviously it was working just fine. I'm rather surprised that nothing besides the four "lap" shots turned out on the roll.
7. Does this photo bring back any memories?
Outside of remembering my problems with the 120 back, not really. Nothing in any of the photos was clear enough to be able to identify where it was taken. I even shared them with a friend who would have been with me at that time but she couldn't recognize anything either.
8. How do you think others will respond to this photo?
Mild amusement at my somewhat anguished look as I "shot" myself in the face.
