Long before digital photography and editing took over, I used to shoot black & white film quite a bit. I always liked to have one camera loaded with it when I was on vacations in case I saw some interesting masonry or ironwork that'd look good in B&W. Unfortunately as I began to shoot more and more in digital, my film endeavors fell by the wayside. I had a roll in one of my cameras for a couple of years and I forgot what was even on it. In the spring of 2012, I decided to shoot what was left on the roll, although I neglected to notice that it was black & white film. I truly thought it was a roll of colour. So almost all the pictures I shot were of flowers. Imagine my surprise when I popped the cartridge out and discovered it was black & white!
So I took the roll to CVS and sent it away. A few days later they called me to say that the roll was rejected because their processor couldn't do that particular kind of film. The roll languished in my purse for a few more years, until early in 2015 when my friend Alicia, a film student in Spokane, said that she could process it for me at the school.
She was busy with classes of course, first, so she was finally able to get the negatives and pics sent to me in mid December. It was pretty cool to see what was on it! Most of the pics are flowers so I didn't bother taking pics of the pics. But here are some of the others.

A huge thank you, again, to Alicia Dunavan for processing these for me after all these years!!!
