Those Lost Pictures

You know this usually happens. You go to the lab and you don't feeling like scanning all the negatives. When you go again to pick up the results you get upset. Just a few were saved. But shouldn't be us who decides?

Some were taken with an Holga using 35mm film without back, others simply 120 films.

This is for beginners: when you take your films to the lab, check you have everything done. Sometimes they take the decision of killing your pictures!

    i have a friend in a lab and he checks everything for me, so nice. i am planning on getting a scanner though, because the reason he checks them so well is because their scanner decides what is and is not a good picture...

    Of course, my scanner is not the best for negatives but anyway... as this is something that usually happens with some labs... Maybe some of the pictures could become better if I had a good scanner.

    After I had my first two rolls from my first Diana totally screwed up by a lab (they kept scanning and printing in rectangular, not square format, and totally forgot to scan one roll--they scanned the same roll twice!) I bucked up and paid out for my own scanner. No regrets--I got a great Canon 8800 for under $200 and it's already paid for itself.
