I’ve been torn between publishing this album or not for a while. Truth to be told I’m not a big fan of grains.
I started having problems with my Olympus OM 10 quite a while ago when I lost a whole roll of shots taken with Isabel in London and with my friend Adele in Amsterdam. Of course I was quite pissed but I managed to identify the problem in a defective locking mechanism. Once fixed, I gave another go to the camera in Belgium. Quite oddly, all the pics taken in flawless light conditions turned out to be very grainy. I blamed myself for mistaking the right settings and I decided to use the Olympus OM 10 again while I was on holiday in Greece. To my utter disappointed, the whole film, once developed, was incredibly overexposed.
My faithfulness to film photography was strained again.
I chose to publish these pics not for their artistic value, which to be honest it’s quite low, but for the good times they recall.
