I vaguely remember choosing a colour film for that session with no idea what the colours would come out. I knew it would be somewhat unpredictable, and thought that if I didn’t like the colours, I’d desaturate them digitally anyway. I’m glad I chose the colour film, although some of these photos look better in black and white (I checked).

For my pinhole photography shoot back in 2007 I chose one of the poorest areas in Wroclaw, known commonly as the “Bermuda Triangle” (because stuff disappears there). I was a bit afraid to go there alone, so I took two guys with me. Nobody who saw me taking photos seemed to mind, though. They were curious why I liked those poor, decayed and godforsaken places.
I was going through my archives to see what I could post, and found this folder with a film scan from 2007, when I tried to experiment with a pinhole camera. I shot one film, scanned the negative, found the photos disappointing and moved on to digital photography.
Looking at these photos now, I find a whole new level of awesomeness about them. Not the careful-composition-perfect-exposure-eyestabbing-focus awesomeness, but rather cool-experiment-nice-atmosphere quality.
Yes, it’s a terribly blurry, badly overexposed photo with weird colours and random composition, scanned from an apparently damaged negative that I didn’t care to retouch. And I still think it’s cool.
Also, it shows my hometown, Wroclaw <3
