gun safety

There are many reasons I shoot mainly digital photos now, but here's one of them: the oh shit moment when we realise that the two film cameras you were testing for condition (by winding, triggering the shutter, checking the meter works, checking the shutter speeds sound right) were actually loaded, and you're gonna end up with a bunch of out of focus shots of knees, elbows, and googly eyes staring at the lens.

This must be the photographic equivalent of hunters shooting themselves in the head while cleaning their guns. Doing it with a digital is the equivalent of being able to retroactively decide that the gun was, after all, unloaded.

Anyway, it looks like I'll be taking old fashioned b&w for the next few days/70 shots.
