The roll-fillers!

Nothing exciting here, just the photos you make to fill a roll. Just imagine, you’re home, you got some time on your hands and a roll of film thats nearly full and you’d like to develop it. But you’re a cheapskate and don’t like to waste those shots like me.

So this post is about the shots you make from your bedroom window….

Well, of course they will be wasted… but ahem.. creatively!

And please remember that the very first photograph…View_from_the_Window_at_Le_Gras,_Joseph_Nicéphore_Niépce

was taken by Nicéphore Niépce from such a place too, with nothing exceptional in sight except for roofs and chimneys. So I guess it’s keeping up an age old photographic legacy!

So here are my modest takes at photographic history, the End-of-Roll shots:

Evening, shaky hands but still I caught me some atmosphere I think.170101 - Contax Tvs - Ilford HP5 - 018

Eat that, Nicéphore, I see roofs too!170108 - Canon A-1 - Ilford HP5 001

And those pedestrian crossing signs… here goes another last frame.170615 - Canon AE-1 - Ilford HP5 (10)

Speaking of crossing… this is a small chapel just next to our bedroom. 170615 - Canon AE-1 - Ilford HP5 (9)

And sometimes, yeah, sometimes there’s something interesting happening just outside my window. Here’s the ‘Tour de Luxembourg’ bike race passing… well, they are more numerous, normally and the main group passed a minute later but my roll was finished… 170611 - Olympus XA2 - JCH StreetPan 400 (24)

Thanks for looking, and don’t just snap off those last frames thoughtlessly! Create photographic legacy by shooting like Nicéphore Niépce!
