the curtain (#372)
Camera: Zorki 3C | ISO : 400 | Focal Length: 50.0 mm | Film Make: Kodak Tri-X | #4
Just upfront: There is no symbolic meaning to this picture. No curtain falling, nothing like that at all. I just happen to like the abstractness of the picture. It was also an experiment, since it was taken in a rather dark cinema. The curtain was originally red and I would have thought it would have been way too dark for anything to show up on the negative. Turns out that there was enough to work with in this case.
It has been really hot here in Berlin, 35°C. Luckily my flat is rather well insulated and it’s not as hot in here as outside. Tomorrow it’s supposed to cool down to more manageable temperatures and I hope I’ll get the opportunity to get out with the camera. Maybe it’s a good to take a break after having finished my 365 project, but in fact I don’t really want to. It just so happens that the outside world feels like an oven at the moment, which is not too good for the film rolls anyway. As far as I know film can go brittle with the heat and the Zorki isn’t made for those modern rolls anyway. I could go out with my Canon, but I still have a roll to finish.
Excuses, you say? Well, I admit that I’m lazy as well. And besides, going outside involves melting away slowly, worse so in the subway. I rather curl up on the sofa with a good Science Fiction novel.
