Dwindling Source of Excuses
So Courtney brought my last two C-41 rolls from the To-Do box to Long's this afternoon and now I have a shot-but-unprocessed backlog of zero, not counting the couple of rolls that are currently loaded in cameras (including an Ektachrome 100VS 6x6 roll from January, *sigh*). If I want more pictures, I'd best go out and make some.
Current supplies: five rolls of TMax 100, 13 rolls of Delta 400, two rolls of Kodak Gold 100 neg and a test roll of the new Ektachrome 100 G. About a half-dozen 120 E100VS rolls, two long-cut (old bottom-loading Leica-style) TMax 100 rolls, and of course the digital... with about 200 exposures of ancient digibacklog from Helsinki needing to be spooled-off to CD (never to be seen again?).
The real question, as ever, is what to do with it.
Ideas jotted into the visor at various times:
- Rooms of the House
- Seeing beyond the seen: psychics
- The ongoing "infinity marker project" (inside joke w/Contax)
- Crappy bars
Grrr. None of them seem all that satisfying, at least not at this hour. Psychics, though seeing beyond or through or past the surface of things is what they're all about, at least that's the story. And maybe that's exactly what I want to get out of these pictures a source of second sight. Or do I really want to degenerate the unseen into objects, handy little paper rectangles? Am I just looking for an excuse to objectify every experience? I'm pretty darned sure I don't want scenic vistas and adorable kitties, but I'm feeling waffly about what I do want today. Ticks me off at myself.
