Walking In Memphis

Golden Gate Bridge
Joshua Tree N.P.
Las Vegas, Nevada
June 2009.

Neither did I take these pictures in Memphis nor anywhere else in the land of the delta blues, but that song by Marc Cohn has been stuck in my head for a couple days now, and indeed it is one heck of an awesome song. 
I did however bring some rolls of medium format film to the lab that I used in my Holga camera on a trip from Boston to New Orleans, and I did of course visit Graceland in Memphis and the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Anyway, I can pick the film up next week. However, it's impossible to say for sure what the pictures are going to look like - maybe there won't be nothing visible at all. None of those rolls have been stored in a fridge. Now I know that I should've done that. Back then I didn't know. Then they got lost in one of the boxes of developed films and prints - until I found them recently.

Have a nice day.

- Dom

Fingers crossed that they are good. Probably the main problem will just be that the colours are weird but if you scan them you can correct that. Post a few, won't you!

Dominic Doherty said...

I will!

Babzy said...

Dominic Doherty said...

I certainly hope so!

Love the photos! I know very little about film myself. I have my Holga and I still haven't taken enough photos to full up the entire roll. I've had it for 2 years now. Do you think it's too ruined to ever be developed by this point?

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you! :-)
Some people use expired film and achieve great results... maybe it's going to work. Good luck! :-)

she' beautiful in all kind of ways.

Dominic Doherty said...

Yeah... she's one of my favourite actresses of this decade (the other being Audrey Tautou). Another favourite of mine would have to be Jean Seberg from back in the 1960's.

oh yes, carey mulligan! an education is really good. have you seen Never let me go?
also a good film, the story is so sad, but so good.

Dominic Doherty said...

I haven't seen that film yet. I'll watch it tomorrow... partying tonight, and I love watching films when I have a hangover :-)
