Last week I finally started developing films again after quite a while, as I got all the necessary equipment again after moving. I just developed a film that has been sitting on a shelf for the last two years and on one of the frames I met a dear friend that passed away about a year ago.
It has been a while since we last met and your last months where a bit tough…
But Vencl, this is exactly how I remember you – with a bandana around your neck, a smile in your eyes and one of your many chewed up tennis balls in your mouth.
I like going to this place. It is calm and beautiful. The irony is, it is an industrial lake where they dig pebbles.
This time around I visited it with a homemade lens that I got once in a trade deal on an antique market. It looks funny and is not particularly sharp, but I can easily say that it doesn’t lack character.
