It's that time of the month, and I've shot some film, developed it, and come to share it. I've shot two rolls of FP4 this week. But seeing as the rolls only allow for 8 shots in this camera, I only end up with about 14 shareable shots. Still not a huge amount (if this … Continue reading Roll Eight – February 2018
A new year always brings to mind a certain quote from Nietzsche. It's a bit long so I'll put the whole section at the end. But the jist of it is Amor Fati. Let that henceforth be my love...I wish to be at any time hereafter only a yes sayer! There is a kind of … Continue reading Roll seven – January 2018
It has been about six months since my last post in this vein. Towards the beginning of the year, the plan had been a roll of FP4, shot, develop in rodinal, scan and shared on here each month. After five months of this I struggled, and dropped it (or as it turns out, put it … Continue reading Roll six – December 2017
You may notice (or not, as it is probably not that important), that this post is late. It is not, in fact, in May [shock, horror]. About a week before the end of May, I realised that there was no chance I would get the roll finished, developed and written about. My response was typical … Continue reading Roll five – May 2017
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must remain silent. -Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico Philosophicus I made a couple of (rather slight) changes to the set up this month. Firstly I used the Olympus 35 RC instead of the SP. So what? You say. Yea, it's no big thing really. But it does mean no spot meter … Continue reading Roll Four – April 2017. Whereof one cannot speak.
Seeing as my aim was to shoot a roll, develop, scan and reflect each month, I have left this a bit late. I have started writing this on the 26th, having just today finished the roll which I began only yesterday. I was unsure whether I'd even work out time to shoot a roll this … Continue reading Roll three – March 2017. The Same River, Twice.
The world is never quiet, even it's silence eternally resounds with the same notes, in vibrations which escape our ears. As for those we perceive, they carry sounds to us, occasionally a chord, never a melody. Albert Camus I have struggled to think of what to write. So I'll keep words to a minimum this … Continue reading Roll Two – February 2017. The Eternally Resounding Silence
Frosty Reflections. f1.7, 1/125 second I had warned of mundanity in my previous blog post, but you have only just been spared the most uninspired set of pictures that existed. I mean really drab. Putting-the-mono-in monochrome types shots. The highlight was going to be a cat on a bin (I'm not kidding, here it is) … Continue reading Roll One – January 2017. Frosty Reflections.
