Scratches in my pictures? Well, I could either spend hours removing them or I could go out and take some more pictures. I chose not to give in to obsessive perfectionism (Yes, this is the point where you’re supposed to say “Oh wow, well done!”). These pictures are from a roll that ripped in the camera because I got soaking wet. The scratches happened because I could not rewind the roll properly and instead had to get the film off the take up spool in the dark. Basically, whenever the film rips, scratched negatives are inevitable.
