Isolation Photo Project, Day 80: Pentax ES II and a damaged roll of Kodak Color Plus 200

I shot a 36 exposure roll of Kodak Color Plus 200 at the end of May which was developed and scanned by The Darkroom on 2 June 2020. The scanned images have defects which are my fault. Why?

After shooting the film roll, I stuffed it into my pants pocket and forgot about it. That was until my wife came upstairs. She had heard something banging around in the dryer. It was the film canister from my pants pocket.

With the exception of the damage due to “washing”, I like the look of these scanned images. I deleted most of the images. The ones shown here are the “keepers”. I am abusing the meaning of that word.

Once my Asahi Optical Co. Pentax ES II returns from being cleaned, lubricated and adjusted by Eric Hendrickson, I will try another roll of Kodak Color Plus 200. But next time, I’ll skip the washing machine and dryer.

This roll was exposed during a hike on the Aunt Molly trail in Hopewell Township.

    • In 2018, while working from home one day, I was a bit distracted. I was rushing to heat a bowl of soup, and I had my iPhone in my hand. Unable to properly handle the bowl, I absentmindedly put the phone down on the turntable of the microwave, placed the bowl inside and yeah, microwaved the phone for about 2-3 minutes. I didn’t even notice what I had done. Even after I removed the bowl to eat my soup. A few minutes later, when I needed to call my wife, I roamed around the house looking for my iPhone. Then I remembered the microwave and had a pit in my stomach. The phone was as hot as a potato. There was no damage to the microwave, but my ego was bruised.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a goof like that but I am sure you aren’t the first to do something like it. I kind of like the bubble (?) pattern if it was on its own..

    • Hi Steve, if there is a mistake than can be made I will make it. I once accidentally microwaved my iPhone, which of course destroyed. When I took it to the Apple Store, you should have seen the look I got when I tried to explain what happened.
