Saved by the...... just saved somehow

Well i got bored the other night decided to make roll of redscale film using the old flip cut a stick technique.
I had several problems with this roll and im very suprised i got the results i did. Firstly the film expired in 2002 and alot of the film was rotten so much so there was a portion of film where the sprockets had perished which brought me to my second problem, which was that i couldn't load the film on the reel as it kept getting wedged when it reached the perished part of the film. Then finally as there was no reel in my tank i couldn't guarantee it was light tight either! Shooting was an issue too as i rated the film at 50ASA and i don't think England has ever been bright enough to allow you to shoot pictures at hand held speeds! Therefore i mainly just kept the camera set to f/2.8 - 1/60 :D
