The Lost Roll
February 25, 2015
About a year ago I lost 1 roll of 24 shot Ilford HP5 400. Yes, I know – bad photographer lady.
I shoot with a few different camera’s – usually my Canon 5D Mk II, Canon EOS 50e 35mm SLR and my Mamiya 645Pro. But I also carry with me to most places my Pentax Spotmatic SP 1000. Most of the Black & White work you see here is shot with this beauty. An oldie but a goodie, gifted to me by my Dad’s best friend many moons ago. I pretty much take it everywhere. So I had been looking for this lost roll for sometime and BOOM a couple of weeks ago I found it! I had placed it on my bookcase for safe keeping (a-huh) and it rolled backwards behind the bookcase without me noticing.
Very happy to have found her, I took her straight to the lab. I had a pretty good idea of what was on the roll – I had done a couples shoot, wedding, tutored my friend Will and seen my bestie with her bubby. A mixed roll indeed.
So here are some treasures I found behind my bookcase.
