Two weekends ago, I left my Leica point-and-shoot film camera on the IKEA Ferry on the way to Red Hook. It took me four hours (basically on the way back to Manhattan) to realize it was even missing. Rodrigo said I had acted like it was “the end of the world”. I was more upset over the lost film than the actual camera itself (even though the camera also had sentimental value). I don’t care if I have to spend $100 for another camera exactly like it, but I didn’t know if I was ever going to get a chance to go to Machu Picchu again!
Needless to say, I developed that roll of film the very next day. Circle Line Lost & Found, thank you!!!
And of course, because I’m bad at shooting in film, this roll also includes other scenes from Autumn and Winter (Blizzard 2016!!!!).
New-to-me experience: finding a used-up roll of film and not having a clue of what was on it. Rodrigo and I threw ideas back and forth on what the photos could possibly be. We were both wrong.
Dating back all the way to the Autumn of 2014 through New Year’s Day 2015, I was surprised by all the wonderful portraits I took of my friends. This one has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while and I didn’t even know it.
Sad but true: this one roll of black and white film spans from February through October 2015.
One of my goals this past trip in Peru was to take a lot of photos on film. When I usually get my film developed, I go through photographer’s remorse when I realize how little I’ve captured. Unfortunately, this still happened during my most recent trip in early October. I swear I took more photos, but I guess it all ended up in my iPhone instead.
Part two of Peru is coming up… as soon as I finish my roll of film.
