Fade To Black...

I'd seen some really great images during 'Roid Week 2010 on flickr made with Fade to Black film, and I felt that I should try it out before I lost the chance. Distressing to find out the very last of the film is being sold before you've had the chance to try it out {oh, wait, that happened to me with 600 film also}.

So, today, I managed to take some awful photos with PX100, a few terrible Spectra shots, then I had to pick myself up and decide whether or not to even try one more photo! I took a couple selfies {ok, I'm not even going to say "portrait" because they are also very bad}.

Poor tulips really should've been photographed... but here's what I came up with instead:

His and Hers

I love it. It's exactly what I was hoping for - ok, no, it's actually better. Of course, this is before peeling it, so who knows what it will look like when I'm finished. Fun!

No, I am not scanning the faded selfies. Unless I suddenly look gorgeous in faded form. Not going to happen. I am going to go hide all evidence of other photographs taken today.

I truly hope other people have frustrating moments when they want to throw out all recent photographs. It almost made me pull out the digital camera.


  1. I have plenty of frustrating moments/days/weeks/months like that! Usually when I get close to the end of a big project, I want to throw everything out and start over.
    I absolutely love this image you got! It is stunning! Love love love it! I'm excited to see what it looks like when you are finished peeling :)

  2. This is an awesome photo! Keep it up.
