Wax, 2020 – Part of the ‘Remnants’ series

I am still working on this project where I photograph things/moments which we otherwise ignore or don’t think twice about. Once those things and moments are gone, they are gone forever. This project is about the mundane and how it makes me feel.

And I suppose, this is why I love photography.

It imprints. It makes permanent. It immortalises.

30 Day Photo Challenge: Bonus Post

Happy New Month everyone.

I am here to report that I have done another 30 Day Photo Challenge, successfully. Well, almost. Missed posting on Day 6 at the allotted time, but made up for it. 😅

In case you missed it, the introduction post before the challenge can be found here.

The film I shared was shot back in 2018 between February and June. It is only now that I have managed to scan and share the images with you having not even seen the photos properly prior to this challenge. As you may have noticed, like taking another photo of the same scene just in case and this is why I sometimes ended up two of the same photo.

The film I used was an Ilford FP4 Plus 35mm, ISO 125. I have never used this type of film before and was basically experimenting. As a result, when processing the film, I lost the rest of the roll as I could not manage to wind all of it in the film spool. 😬

And since I do not have any bonus frames to share, I will re-share this photo of my daughter seeing as it is her birthday today. Happy Birthday, Princess!

I also noticed that I did not squeegee the water from the film properly during processing, so the dried water markers can be seen in some of the photographs. All in all, I am still happy with them.

So, which photographs have been your favourite? Leave a comment below with Day 6, 15, 22.

I will be doing this challenge again in September as it is the next month with 30 days. Not sure what kind of images I will share then, but keep checking in. I might just surprise you and myself.

From next week, I am back to posting once a week on Fridays.

Stay safe and don’t forget to wash your hands!
