grain and numbers visible, no idea why.

    Cool shot, how do you expose the numbers on to the negatives through the backing?

    @akula well, I did not know at the beginning how it really happened, but as I talked with some other lomographers, it is the fault of the film, probably the whole batch of films was affected. But yeah, on some places it looks cool :)

    @akula @erikagrendel this usually happens to me when the sun is shining and there's a lot of light hitting the film, whether on its paper backing or from the edges...

    Interesting image. I have many with dots and numbers too. I have just learned to like them. An interesting character builder.

    Congratz on POTD!! Enjoy!! The print on the backing comes through to film because film was stored in too warm place, like >40C for days. This was probably Lomography's fault, if it's Lomography film. Also, just like your baby, don't leave your camera unprotected in closed car!! That can reach >60C!!
