Sprockets And A Fire Hydrant

One thing I like to do is shoot Sprockets, and what that means is that you take the film and load it into a camera that will shoot the entire strip of film.  In this case it was a Rolleicord V.
This allows you to use the entire film, including the Rebate area, which has the sprocket holes.

The film I usually use to shoot Sprockets is Polypan, because it has no markings in the Rebate area, and so the only thing you get are sprocket holes, and nothing more.
I just love using this film in a 6x6 camera because it is a very fine grain film, and shooting a larger image, it just looks so much finer.
