So I recently popped open an envelope full of medium format negatives (around 250 of them) and scanned the first dozen or so. Some have really damaged emulsions, and some are blurry / poorly shot – but then, some of them are not:

I can’t wait to see what the rest of this set looks like, but since I’ve spent 10 minutes with it so far – and my negatives & scanner are hundreds of miles away, since I’m on vacation down South – we shall have to wait to see what the next dozen hold. These were the best two from this lot. In any case, hopefully there’s some more winners in that envelope!
