It’s been a bit of a challenge, but today I’m finally crossing the finish line of the 52 weeks | 52 rolls project! Three cheers for me!
As it’s my intention to write a recap post about the whole experience – as a matter of fact I’ve already started on it – I’m heading straight for last week’s roll which I took in the span of an hour, after one storm ended and before another began.
Trying to make the job easier for the lab – it’s still holiday season after all – I asked to have the film C-41 processed, but being Lomography X-Pro Slide the film in question that meant I had it cross-processed.
Aren’t the first two shots – nearly the same but for the colours – amazing?
I took the same image twice because as usual my Yashica got stuck after the first shot, but I haven’t the faintest idea of how I managed to create such a completely different colour scheme!
Until someone will come up with an explanation, I’ll think of it as a final dose of Christmas magic.
The tinge of redness in the rocks below has utterly charmed me.
That’s not a tangerine tree (they don’t grow at such northerly latitudes), but a tree decorated with tangerines. Isn’t it lovely?
Thank goodness that afternoon the sea was calm, otherwise with such a high tide it would have been impossible to walk where I did.
And here’s the last film photo of 2013, or at least the one I think will be the last.
The focal point didn’t end up where I wanted it to be, but I’m happy the iconic chimneys (the two red-and-white striped chimneys I’ve been shooting so many times lately) are still visible among the approaching clouds and general haziness. Aren’t they?
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas holiday. Are you now getting ready for New Year’s Eve?
