Roll #51 – Lomography Earl Grey 100

Now that the sun is showing its face more often, all the ISO 100 films can creep out of the fridge again. And now that I’m getting closer to the finish line of 52 rolls, I can feel the urge to start into a sprint.

Balancing a somewhat strict schedule – posting every sunday – with going somewhere to shoot some actually interesting photos often fails. Good work takes time (and more than one roll of film).

I haven’t really decided on what to do with the blog, once I reached the original goal. I might continue, but with a slower pace. I might concentrate more on long term projects and use it as some sort of project diary. I might mix both. I might do none. For the moment I’ll focus on the finish line and sprint.

Lomography Color Negative (CN) 100 (Medium Format)

The year is over. For me it didn’t go out all that well. It’s strange seeing a photo you took in a frame next to a cinerary urn. But life goes on and you are once more reminded, that spending time with family and friends is important. So is taking photos of them.

I’m not sure yet how this whole thing here will continue. I may continue shooting the remaining rolls. But maybe a fresh start with something else would be better? Who knows – well, I don’t.

At the moment time seems to be moving faster, than I can catch up to.

I’m slowly getting back into the rythm of weekly photo blog updates.
The undeveloped film stack is piling up (6 rolls of 35mm and 1 roll of medium format so far) and the “developed but not scanned” stack is piling down.

This weeks images are back from May, when it wasn’t as unbearable hot as it has been during the last couple of days (and weeks) – up to 37°C / 98.6°F – and I wished I would be a roll of film sitting in the fridge.
