How I ruined the rest of the film

No Parking (Sadri close to Raknapur, in Rajastan India)

I was very happy to walk around the small town of Sidri close to Raknapur in Rajastan. When the color roll came to an end I switched the back of the hassie for the black and white on,e to the wonder of two nice kids who were following me. I even managed not to drop one of the backs on the ground as I did in Borobudur not so long ago.

Evening comes, I take the color back and rewind the film, take it out put a new one in, switch the backs, take the black and white back and …. rewind !!! Donkey !!! There was only two shots in the film ! Worse were the ten worrying seconds where I had the feeling something was going wrong without being able to tell what. Yes there are pretty worse things than rewinding an unfinished film.

How I ruined the rest of the film

Nice – Le Port – Juillet 2011

Le Port de Nice

One of the first films in Cafenol; nice harbor under July mid-day sun. I’ve been walking around nice with the Hassie and the d700+17-35 for the last two hours, I definitely looked like a sweaty tourist. This is the last shot of the film, I put a Portra in just after and make a couple of very similar shots.. maybe another post tomorrow?
