Roll 182. Going home for New Year’s
Katen and I went south for New Year’s to celebrate with my family. I wanted to pack light so I left the camera bag at home. But it would have been a shame to travel without a camera so I went to the huge box of compacts I bought on EBay a couple of months ago. Most used CR2 batteries, of which I had none at home, but the Olympus AF-10 Super accepts plain AAA batteries as well – bingo.
Expecting bleak weather I grabbed a couple of rolls of Kodak Tri-X ISO 400 film, stuck the camera in my coat pocket and off we went.
The train ride took a night and a day, but landed us safely at our destination.
As expected the weather was grey. But it didn’t rain, and there was no strong wind. All together it was pretty nice outside, and I took a couple of long photowalks.
One of them brought me to my favorite lake. It was deserted as usual.
The road leading there is slowly being reclaimed by the forest. In a couple of years there will be nothing but a narrow path leading visitors there. And then, perhaps nothing.
