Has Photography Saved Your Life?

…because yesterday, it saved his.

…He was being a housebound teenager of 13–A jerk to everyone around him for no particular reason, other than the fact that he wasn’t getting his way.

So I finally put a camera in his hand, and out we went.

These are my photos, not his…because he didn’t finish his roll…

But fortunately we both came out the better for it.

The Project

It’s the sort of thing that begs for MF B&W film.

I didn’t get exactly the type of shots I envisioned…but I guess I’m happy with how these turned out.

The Twelve Frames of Christmas

(…Already??)

Yes.  Already.

We are one of those families.

(Hey, when you have kids, you decorate early…)

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In any case, to the best of my knowledge, this sort of thing has never been attempted anywhere before…especially not without some sort of safety harness.

What you have here, folks, is all twelve frames from a roll of 120 yesterday.  No, I’m not sayin’ they’re all great…but some are quite postable.

And like the great Ansel Adams once said: “If you don’t take the shot…you won’t have the picture”.

Or something like that.

Anyhoo…here they are in exactly the same order they were shot and came off the roll.  (Actually, they came off the roll in reverse, because of how 120 spools…but this is how they were shot.  Trust me.)

You saw it here first.
