The Horizon chewed my sprockets off...!

I had so many problems with this album that it's a minor miracle I got any shots to show at all. The decision to do EBS was spontaneous, and I didn't have my homemade splitzer-filter with me, so I improvised by taping a piece of card to the revolving gate at the front of the Horizon, nor did I have a changing bag, so I had to flip the film back from the redscale side inside my jacket, sitting on a park bench. On top of that, the tape at the end of the roll came off when I was flipping the film and got stuck inside the camera somewhere, plus I got a couple of screwed exposures because the speed-selector switch got knocked into the white position (= long exposure times), and, yeah, the film got partly mangled by the fierce teeth of the Horizon. All in all, it was not an experience I hope to experience again anytime soon ;-)
