Roll #51 – Lomography Earl Grey 100

Lomography Earl Grey 100 (120 Medium Format), without packaging

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.

Roll #35 – Adox Silvermax 100

Adox Silvermax 100

The year is drawing to a close. Sadly it’s too warm for snow over here, so all there is to shoot are naked trees and empty gardens.

I started thinking about the future of this project (or my next project for 2016), but haven’t reached a final decision yet…
