The Lost Film Rolls Vol. 1

This is the first in a series of five volumes, each revealing a couple images from lost film rolls I have had developed. This is a phenomenon we are all familiar with, but it’s still like Christmas Day when you show up to pick up your developed rolls of film from God-knows-when.

Rome (2002)

Here are a pair of double exposures that cropped up on one of my rolls. The images are of Rome, the city wherein my wife and I were married, which makes it sort of tragic, as these are the only two photos that developed on this roll (the rest came out blank).

I think the film must have gotten caught and stopped advancing. Strangely, I have a vague recollection of this happening, almost seven years ago now.

At least the two that did develop are sort of interesting to look at. Maybe there’s a metaphor in the whole thing, but I’m not caffeinated enough to figure it out.
