one tick off the to do list!

I have just collected some photos from the lab and I had forgotten that simmering excitement of waiting to see the results.  Add to that the fact a few months passed between taking the photographs and exposing the film and my hazy memory meant that I really wasn’t sure what to expect.  I knew the shots I’d taken were part of my on-going Reflections project and that I’d been traipsing all around the city searching out the most interesting reflective surfaces.  More than that I wasn’t sure.
I’m really pleased with some of the results.  I love the texture that comes across when shooting on film, and the far more stark contrast with black and white compared to simply adding a layer on Photoshop, which just isn’t the same.  I’ve scanned a selection in for you, some of the beauty and pleasure of physically holding photos is obviously lost but I feel like the project is starting to thicken out.  I’m at the point where I need to cherry pick a few shots to develop myself in a dark room, so I can really stretch them, maybe print them on a larger scale:

  I’d love to hear what you think.

    They’re really nice. It’s good to be involved in a project, and though I don’t do any film, I understand what you say above about it. The reflections in the 3rd photo are amazing – like Navaho designs or something!
