Even after shooting slide film for 9 years when I send film off I hang around my letter box like a vulture when I know it’s arriving back from the lab. Today I was out the back and I heard the postmans bike in the distance. I almost re enact the Eddy Murphy skit about “The Icecream man is coming” from his Delirious tour.
So I stand at the window watching the postman drop letters in my mailbox waiting to see my film package, I then watch him reach into the red bag and pull out the Express post pack. “Its here”. I’m at the letter box before he even has a chance of attempting to put it into the slot. “Thanks mate” I say and before I get to my front door I have the express post pack torn open. Now all you digital shooters are probably thinking I’m some kind of weirdo. But you cant understand, it is a film shooters thing.
This is one of the first images taken with my Fuji GX617 and it is going to be added to my limited edition collection. A nice way to start off shooting with a new camera system.
New slide images have also been added to my main gallery.
