Film Series – Seaport Village
San Diego, CA | Diani Mini | Stock Lens | Ilford HP5 Plus B&W
A few weeks back, I searched far and near for any rolls of film that I needed to get developed. I found a few in the car, and there were several tucked away in a pocket of my messenger bag. This roll happened to be one of the newly found and reclaimed.
I had the Mini Diani tucked away in the glove compartment of my car for several months, as the Ricoh KR-5 Super and Minolta XG-A were being given the majority of my attention.
Enough time had passed that I had forgotten what was the subject of my captures. All that was written on the canister was the date – where was I on October 29, 2011? It was a pleasant surprise and a reminder to reconnect with my Mini Diani and to save her from the caverns that is my glove compartment.
This series brought a child-like smile to my face. The giddy of surprise of discovery and the delight of pride in what was created. I am drawn to the haunting (minus the creepy) and aged feel of these images.
