The Last of 2015


This is my last post of 2015, and for me, it is week 53 since I have chosen to follow this calendar’s numbering. If you are interested in seeing my selection of favourite shots from these 53 (+) rolls, I have posted it today at my blog (at this link).

Just before Christmas we traveled north on Vancouver Island to a small rural community north of Comox to visit our granddaughter and her parents. Today’s photos are from that visit on a damp and chilly day when we did a bit of baby sitting by taking a walk on fisherman’s wharf in Comox Harbour. There is more to this roll of film, but it will show up on my blog as time permits. I love the featured shot – the colours and simplicity and dynamic pose all appeal to me but perhaps most of all I appreciate the “3” since my granddaughter turns three in a few days time. It seems perfect!

I am still dithering about whether to take part fully in a 2016 52Rolls project. With a daily blog to maintain, and extended periods off the grid, or otherwise on the road, it has been a stretch this year. And while that stretch has not ruined the fun, sometimes it was a bit more like work and a bit less like fun than I had hoped for. But, it did keep me shooting film, and I did shoot more than twice as many rolls of film as in 2014, and in many more cameras.

So, I will start a 2016 52Rolls project, but I won’t commit to finishing it this year.  However I will, at the very least, take Urban up on his kind offer to those of us that have participated in previous years, to post occasionally even if not participating fully. Thanks Urban, and thanks for maintaining this project and creating a place for us like-minded people to hang out and show our work and seek help on a wide variety of topics. And thanks to this great community for all your support over the past year. May you all have a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

    • Thank you so much Peter. And thank you for all your supportive comments throughout the year. Your contributions on so many posts at 52 Rolls are a big part of the community. I hope to see you around in 2016.

    • Thank you Ashoke. I new the background would work really well in the subdued light and rain, but when I snapped the first picture, I was disappointed that my granddaughter was turned from the camera, hence the other ones. But we don’t need her face to make this shot work, perhaps it even works better without it.


  1. You’re right, that’s a really great shot! And congratulations on finishing the project. You’re one of the few people that have actually pulled that off! And yes please stop by occasionally. This site is as much about the community as it’s about shooting weekly.


    • Thanks Urban, 52Rolls has been a really good experience so I don’t plan on disappearing. And, perhaps my presence will turn into a second year of full participation. Happy New Year!

  2. Reblogged this on burnt embers and commented:

    Here are some granddaughter photos from my last 2015 roll on my 52 rolls in 2015 project. Tomorrow there will be a few more from this roll on my blog. The lead photograph is one of my favourites of 2015 – just sneaking under the wire for the year.
