lost and found negs. they were never lost, just that thing when you hide your most treasured treasures, in the hopes of securing them from being misplaced or mistreated...then you forget about them.
just for a brief time though. not long enough to forget ever taking them, developing them, cutting them down into strips, storing them in slips, and placing them in a magazine and underneath a few large books to make them flat under the pressure.
when i found them in that secured, safe, hidden and rediscovered place...endless elation and a breath held tenuously for three days of manic searching and recounting was exhaled.
take better notes.
