Doughnuts and More Found Film

Nothing gets my sweet tooth more excited than driving past a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop and seeing the “Hot and Fresh” sign flashing in the window.

During the day, Krispy Kreme looks like just another place with a fun sign.

But once night falls, its evil glow can topple even the strongest effort at resistance. The glow of the sign gets into your head and you can’t get it out. Every time I pass the place at night, I say to myself “The glow gets into your soul.” Hah! Luckily it isn’t getting into my belly.

Here are a few more of the “found film” shots. I love these!

Atlanta skyline with just a wee ( read as “a lot”) bit of lens distortion. I need to take some better gear down to that overpass and try this shot again.

Here’s my friend Dan, who was with me the day I shot the roll of film. I think he was over the whole thing. 🙂 Nine years of waiting to be processed did soften these shots, as can especially be seen in the photo of Dan. The cast has also gone very green. I chose to leave these photos as they are instead of doing any color correction on them.

Apologies for the short post today, but my day is starting earlier than usual. Have a great day and take a picture of something!

Out of Hibernation

Huge apologies for dropping off the radar for an extended period of time. Life got stressful, pressing matters had to be dealt with. I humbly return with a whole slew of new work and upcoming projects.

Make no mistake. I haven’t been able to post, but I’ve been reading and enjoying all the posts from those I follow.

So without further delay, I hope you enjoy these.

This was the first shot from a recently-acquired Olympus XA. What was meant to be a test roll turned out to be a treasure. The film used for all the photos in this post was Agfa Precisa 100. The cross-processing accentuates the over-exposure in some of the photos, but I love them all the same.

Atlanta Eagle. This is where me and my boyfriend have drinks and while away our Saturday nights. Definitely a different experience from any other pub/bar in the city.

This building is directly attached to the Atlanta Eagle. At night, you’d never guess this is what this obviously vacant building looks like as there are no lights on the building itself. Over on Flickr, I titled this one “The Castle is Ruined, But the King Still Lives.”

On a softer note. This was taken at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri using the same XA. This little baby did such a good job, she’s been given a roll of Portra 160. I can’t wait to see how she amazes me. Thanks for reading.
