After New Year’s, I never bothered to start back up again. It was dark, and cold, and for the first time in my life I really let the season get to me. I think it might have been different if we still had the winters of my youth, filled with endless amounts of fluffy white snow. These days, winter is unbearably cold, devoid of snow, and with occasional bouts of freezing rain to make life perilous.
In the spring, I made a trip to Cape Cod, with high hopes it’d help coax me out of my winter burrow. It didn’t, and I returned home early because I began to miss my cats. After I got the film back from the lab, I found nothing really worth sharing, or possibly even keeping. The best images from the trip were the Instax minis. However, I did get back a roll of Superia 1600 containing miscellaneous images, including some of Nathalie that I forgot I had taken.
I am back in Montreal December 20 – 22, to make more images of familiar faces as well as new ones. The days are becoming quite warm and sunny, and I am slowly starting to get out of this slump.
All images shot with the Pentax K100o on Superia 1600, developed and scanned by Canadian Film Lab.
