The end of the roll.

Posted in art, culture, life, lomo, lomography, Uncategorized by tarantulatrash on April 14, 2010

I always get excited to see the final image on a roll of film. There’s something magical about half a frame seemingly emerging from a blur of colour. This one is cut off sharp by strong primaries, contrasting the serene and natural colours of the tree. I love this contrast.

This image (which I’ve posted before here) is another example of an end of roll image. It fades. Just gorgeous.

Don’t throw end of roll photos out, because what is there might be just beautiful, especially as it’s incomplete.

The most exciting things in this world are incomplete.

    do you develop your film yourself, or do you have it developed for you? My new LC-A+ just arrived and I was wondering which one you’d recommend.

        I have a darkroom and can use it, but it’s for black and white film… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ thank you for the support! I probably won’t get my pictures up for a while, though, since I’ll have to go into town (I’m at a boarding school) to get them developed.

        I haven’t taken a black and white roll on an LC-A+. I’d be sooo interested to see how they would turn out like if you developed them yourself!
