I’ve always said I wouldn’t post film photos, but this was one of those moments when you *know* you got the shot as soon as you hit the shutter. This was the last frame of a roll of Fuji Xtra 400, taken in Glenfinnan, Scotland. It was a cold, wet day, but that only seemed to bother the tourists (us). I stood there in the rain peering through my viewfinder for a good 2 minutes waiting for the perfect moment to pull the trigger.
A crucial part of the film advance in my Minolta XD 11 broke during our sprint through the airport to make our flight to Ireland, so I only got to shoot two rolls of film on my trip instead of four. But circumstances like that are part of what make photos like this even sweeter.
