Open Window – Weekly Inspiring Image
What is she thinking?
This image was shot on film – back in the day. I wonder how the photographer, living in PNG, got the film processed. I guess he’d have to send it back home to Australia, then wait for the next trip home to see the images. How patient. No glancing at the LCD screen and showing it to his subject for her surprise and delight. Just a small light-proof box full of mystery.
When I used to shoot film I’d see the images scrolling through my head for days or weeks until I could get it processed. Like a constant slide show of frozen moments creating and re-creating themselves in my imagination. Occasionally I was surprised and delighted with the results, but often I was disappointed – and the hunt would start again, with a new roll of film and a lesson learned.
