When using digital cameras any accidental shots are deleted either in camera or when uploaded to a computer. Just a few years after their introduction everyone is so familiar with digital cameras that now a camera is automatically presumed to be digital. When I use my film camera I was struck by how many friends picked it up and tried it out, assuming it was digital and the resulting frame could be deleted. These frames are interesting to me as they were unintentional, accidental, and never meant to be. They show the resilience of film, how it persists and will survive, and yet how it is now unfamiliar to most photographers.
