Adventures in 35mm

I’ve not really been taking my digital camera out with me as often as usual. Maybe it’s because I’ve been doing a lot more shoots, so it’s feeling somewhat of a chore now – I don’t know.  Though I have been carrying around a wee Halina point and shoot 35mm camera almost daily, and snapping whatever I find interesting.

I’ve got a ton of old 35mm waiting to be processed, and I got a couple of those rolls developed too so a couple frames of those have made their way below, but most photos from the past couple weeks.

Because of this, I’ve created a new instagram primarily for my 35mm photos. You can follow that here. I am feeling enthused for a change so will probably enjoy using this instagram for around another week before I start to hate on it. So get it while it’s hot.

Right, here’s a selection of photos I dig for whatever reason, along with a couple of fuck ups because that’s the beauty of film, right?

He was away down the road, talking to someone else. I asked him what he thought he was playing at, and he instantly got on the defence with “it’s just my opinion!”. I told him I thought his opinion was bullshit, and he needed to mind his own business if he can’t begin to understand the complexities that come with women reaching decisions like that. He said he was sorry, but it didn’t feel sincere. It felt like someone backing down, and not because he made some woman cry, but because he didn’t expect a man of my size to object to his bullshit and call him out on it.

Ricoh 500g rangefinder with Kentmere 400, test roll.

A few weeks ago I sent some 35mm to get processed, and due to the lab failing to contact me and ignoring my emails, I’ve been chasing them up for a while to get my negatives back.

Yesterday it finally happened, and here’s a couple featuring JAZZebell_ and Kae.
