Lubbock, TX
















My first attempt at developing C41 film. I had two rolls: one expired roll of Ilford XP1, and a roll of Kodak BW400CN. I can't say I'd choose this film again, as the contrast is too low for my taste.

In other news, I realized during this trip "back home" that I don't miss it as much as I used to. I don't think about returning, like I used to. I enjoy seeing friends and family, but it doesn't have a grip on me anymore. Having said that, my current home isn't "home", either. I feel, at this point, that "home" is wherever I am at the moment....and I like that very much.

"There seemed to be rain, then sunshine, turn about. Real spring weather. I longed to go back into the forest. Oh no real longing. Molloy could stay, where he happened to be." ;)

Buddy Holly?

"My birds (Theristes aside: as opposed to "bees") had not been killed. They were wild birds . . . I tried to understand their language better. Without having recourse to mine. They were the longest, loveliest days of all the year. I lived in the garden. I have spoken of a voice telling me things, I was getting to know it better now, to understand what it wanted." - Beckett, "Malloy"

I missed the street sign on first viewing. :(

Yeah, Jen, somewhat washed out.

Was it old film?

Yes, this film was dated 1985, and I honestly can't remember where I found it. I think it fogged over time. Plus, why BW film as a desaturated color negative? That, I don't understand.


. It probably came with an old camera that had been in someone's attic for years...
