Roll 27: Bubbleboy

Roll 27: Bubbleboy

Fin at his birthday bash, and for the second film running I've chosen the first frame from the roll. These 35mm films seem to last for ever - it took sixteen whole days to get to the last frame. Kinda reminds me of that Diane Arbus 'Child with toy hand grenade...' picture. But without all that trademark Arbus menace and weirdness.


Love film? Then buy the T-shirt!

Hello Dave...
I check out your work from time to time and was surprised by this photo. Fin looks very much like my youngest, Ethan. Here are a couple of links:

Reminds me, too, of that Arbus shot... but those blue eyes make for a weirdness of their own.

You won't catch him with your pinhole camera.

Delightful shot. It helps one forget about England's loss.
