The other week, when I was living on a ship (did I tell you about that?), the camera must have suffered some water damage. Because one roll of film produced photos with black edges on two sides, and I am quite certain I didn’t hold my thumb in front of the lens for every single picture.
I will try to repair them, but for the moment, I will just put them out there and let you make up your own story about what happened that day around Beeskow.
So, I am curious what you think happened that day in Beeskow.
Once I’ll get around to repairing those photos, I will publish the true story of adventures on the boat, a stash of cigars and the lost city in the jungle.
I confess that I rather like those photos as they are. The blackened edges give off a nostalgic, even an ethereal, tinge… they remind me of all the quirks of using film, which I kind of miss. I’m glad that you still use it.
Well, I am glad it was only on the edges.
And that the camera self-repaired after a day, or O would have angrily chucked it into the river. Or into a bin, because I am trying to be an environmentalist.
Film? I agree with Angela – I like the pics as they are.
Such beautiful buildings. Nature reclaiming makes them more interesting, as does your film effect. I wouldn’t even know where to get film developed anymore. I learned how to do black and white film and photo prints in school, but that was many years ago.
Love those ruins.
Around here (Eastern Germany), it sometimes happens that I deem something a ruin, walk into the garden to take photos, and suddenly discover that it’s still inhabited.
