So, I’m in NYC, had fresh rolls of film & was taking photos all over the place. Next thing I know, the metering on my little Mamiya started acting funny. I was in full sun, yet the meter said there was not enough light. I was lost but I tried my best to compensate.

Slower shutter speeds, aperture wide open etc. I just hoped that the photos were useable. That’s the cost of using film.

Then I had a moment of clarity…. The camera battery was dead, so I swapped out for a new one & I was back in business.

After processing & scanning the film, the affected images turned out to be cool. A little shutter drag never hurt anyone…
