Broken Camera- Busted Payphone!
I used a broken Suntone camera to create a photo of a broken payphone! The broken Suntone would put grooves and scratches into the film. The film I had used was expired 6 years old. Many photo shops would refuse my film. Three different photo development stores rejected my film and refused to do any work. I went into another store (#4) and the owner saw my film and became very angry and tried to punch me in the head. Her husband grabbed her hand before the fist could strike. The two people then got into an argument about wether or not to accept my film. Eventually, the owner said in a very evil voice, that she would be happy to help, if i just hand over my film. I got scared and ran out of the store. As I was getting away, I noticed the frowning owner was staring at me from the doorway. I went to a large pharmacy(#5) to bring in my film. The director of the pharmacy gladly accepted my film, even though he did not peek to see what condition it was. Eventually, the pharmacy discovered that the machine would not function using my expired/damaged film. The pharmacy felt challenged with developing my film, my film was sent to corporate headquarters many kilometers away. One month later, I finally got my film. The people at the pharmacy were angry as they discovered that I was the owner of the expired film that got sent away. I was being frowned at by the employees. The cashier slammed down my photos and treated me with cruelty. I did not care because I was happy to get the photos! However, I looked inside then I discovered that my negatives were missing. The people at the pharmacy planned to destroy my negatives in revenge!. After a long argument for 45 minutes, I was able to rescue my negatives from destruction to escape the store. http://www.lomograph(…)os/12928779This photo was shot on film.
