Okay, so I went out with a friend a couple of months ago and we came across some odd stuff. We decided to take some pictures, because we didn't know
what in the heck we were looking at. In fact, it's pretty hard to describe what we thought we saw. We actually thought that it might have been
nothing, but we took a couple of quick pictures to make sure anyways. The rest of the film had been used on random stuff in the every day world like
friends, family, and animals.
Okay, fast forward to Monday and we dropped the film off at Wal-Mart to have it processed. So my mom went in today to pick up the pictures, but
nothing was there. Out of the entire roll of film, there was only one picture that was even partial published...and she said that it was a partial
picture of a license plate. I was at home and didn't go with her, but Wal-Mart didn't print a single picture except for the half-picture of the
She said that the negatives were completely white. Now if you know about regular camera film, there is a red tint to the negative where no color is
imprinted. She said that there was no red tint on the negatives whatsoever, and Wal-Mart didn't even print them.
Okay, so my thing is, why were the negatives white washed? Isn't that highly unusual. If someone cracks the case and light gets in, then there
would be a red strip across the photos and negatives, but there wasn't. My mom doesn't understand my interest in this, so she didn't pay the $2.00
that Wal-Mart wanted for the wasted negatives.
Does anybody have a theory on this? Perhaps my friend and I did stumble across something, or maybe it was just a photographic malfunction. Either
way, I would like someone to comment on this.
