a couple of years ago, i went to france with two of my favorite people. in addition to my digital camera, i carried three rolls of 120 film and a new Diana F lomo camera with which to play.
i shot all three rolls of film. and then i returned to leave them wherever my little heart desired. i left one roll in my carry-on bag and took it on 4 more trips. i left one in my camera bag. and, the other one was in the camera. which, by the way, i left in a “safe” place – in the closet.
i rectified all that nonsense the other day, and took the rolls to be developed.
first roll – 95% exposed to light; mostly black. i couldn’t even print the dark gray picture of the eiffel tower.
second roll – exposed to light – it was all black. that would have been the wine part of the journey. i was drunk that entire time, so i’m sure they all were blurry and complicated.
third roll – 75% exposed to light; mostly black except for three shots. this was the french riviera part of the trip, during which i was also drunk, but somehow managed to shoot these little jems of evidence.
viva la france!
