it's how it came out of the camera Antonio!
this camera has been rattling about in the bottom of a bag with my walking boots for about 10 years I think. it was probably full of sand, hence the scratches. I've no idea where I got it, or the last time I used it until the day before yesterday.
Many of the frames were blank, I was hoping I'd find some old holiday pics or maybe a wedding, but only the ones I took this week came out and some of those were failures.
the minilab said they struggled to get it open, I do wonder if they used a hammer in the end ...
