Back In Time #2

Continuing yesterday’s theme, another mystery roll I developed for the Facebook challenge was an even bigger surprise: it contained images of Pestum, Italy from a trip almost five years ago. I had shot multiple rolls there and this one I guess just got missed. What a thrill when I pulled it out of the tank! All images taken with a Mamiya M645j (since sold) on Fuji Neopan Acros 100 film

Ghosts

I finally got around to developing a roll left from our trip to Italy in November of last year. It was a rainy day in Pompeii, but the rain did a great job of detailing the stones and textures on this ancient street. When I looked at the streets, I could not help but imagine how it would have looked, crowded with citizens and slaves, so many centuries ago.
