Beautiful Mistakes | Opening Up the Back While Still Rewinding

I dropped my chrome MP 0.58 a couple of years ago on an island in Greece. It fell onto a stone floor in the cottage I was staying in and the sound of soft, well-crafted metal hitting stones is a horrifying and expensive sound.

I sent it off to be repaired, the damage was not terrible, but ever since it’s return, the winding mechanism has been very thick and tight when advancing the film, the exact opposite of the buttery suave feel that an M should have.

One of the issues that plagues me occurs when rewinding a roll of film. The knob is so tight that the normal release of tension that one feels when the thread of the film has been unwound is impossible to detect. I am periodically opening up the back of the film just to see that I am only in the middle of a roll still and the strip of film that I have just exposed lays there, all naked and ruined.

So I am occasionally opening up and ruining film. I would not call them light leaks as this is user error.

Still. It can make for some interesting images.

People debate digital versus film all the time. I am guilty of this boring argument as well. But one thing that film really lends itself to are beautiful mistakes.
