I remember when I originally developed this roll (April 2005) I didn’t give this particular shot much thought. I didn’t give it much thought, apparently, for the next 16 years until yesterday when I scanned it in. Looking at all the photos from that roll now, I think it may be my favourite.
I like the way the colours, lines, and the shadows/vignetting of the cheap lens all blend together.
I really like green. It’s a colour that I shoot a lot of, both in colour and black and white. It’s a colour I use in everyday life a lot as well. I remember it always being my favourite colour, from when I was young enough to have a favourite colour. I have to work really hard not to automatically buy everything in varying shades of green.
I wonder what it is in our brains that finds a colour and just latches onto it.
