Those eBay BCTA Photos…

Earlier this year I posted about finding some photograph negatives on eBay last year of Robert Culp from the movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice…and how I blew it off and didn’t put a bid in on them. (Yeah. Didn’t. No, I still can’t believe I was that stupid!) So far, it’s my biggest eBay regret so when another auction came up for additional negatives, I jumped on it and bid. And won.

I ended up with 12 photos of Culp that I subsequently had developed into some nice 8x10s for my own collection. Here they are…


With the exception of adjusting the size and the color due to the scanning, I did no other digital alterations to the photos. I was very pleased with how they came out and am thrilled to have them. I can’t help but wonder what the photo developer thought when they got this order (the negatives had to be sent out to be processed and I waited, patiently, for 3 weeks for them to come back). Did they recognize that this was Robert Culp? Did they wonder how the hell did these negatives ended up in Podunk, USA…?

Whoever it was, I thank them for the fine job they did.

Now if I could just find those other 33 negatives I blew off…

This is now the third such auction on Culp photo negatives from the movie “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” that I’ve seen on eBay and is the second one that I had the smarts enough to bid or buy now on. (You can read about the first set I purchased and see the photos here.) […]
