It is photography itself that creates the illusion of innocence. Its ironies of frozen narrative lend to its subjects an apparent unawareness that they will change or die. It is the future they are innocent of. Fifty years on we look at them with the godly knowledge of how they turned out after all - who they married, the date of their death - with no thought for who will one day be holding photographs of us.

Glitched and Intended
My phone’s camera app froze when I was taking a picture of a flower, and the result was too cool to delete. I retook the picture normally for comparison.
These are some shots from the first roll of film I developed myself.
Photos taken with a Nikon FM10 camera, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D lens, and Ilford FP4+ film (ISO 125), developed in Ilfosol 3. I used a reversal ring for the macro shots (my dog’s eye, the dreamy flower, and the house details).
I scanned the photos with an Epson V600 and used Photoshop to remove dust and scratches and adjust levels. (And I flipped the self-portrait horizontally so the “Nikon” wouldn’t be backwards.) No other cropping or editing was done.
