I have actually had these for quite some time, but have been avoiding posting them.
I don’t know why this post makes me so emotional–after all, the roll has long been dry, and there is plenty more film in the fridge to shoot…
But alas, The 50-Roll Project is now officially complete.
At first I made excuses (“I really didn’t do anything special for my final roll…”)
Then I thought: “If I don’t post it, it really isn’t over…”
It took 49 weeks;
Meaning somehow I actually managed to shoot more than one roll per week.
And one year has passed.
One whole year;
But only one year.
Somehow, it seems longer…but shorter all the same.
Most of these aren’t all that compositionally stunning…
Some of them are a little repetitious.
But they have been life around here…and time just refuses to stand still.
So to those of you who have stuck with us: Thank you–you know who you are.
Thank you to the friends I have made, and to Peter especially for starting me down this road.
If time (and this experience…) have taught me one thing, it is simply this: Pick up your camera–whatever it is–and shoot.
You will not regret it.
You will be glad for the moment…
Sad, perhaps, that it is gone;
But eagerly anticipating the next one.
(Now what to do with all these negatives…)
Warmly and sincerely,
(For those of you just joining us now…the other forty-nine rolls may be found here)
