52:500c – Week 13 – Lovely Downtown

My soul starts spinning again
I can’t stop feeling, no, I won’t stop feeling
And the fun’s not fun anymore
I can’t stop feeling, no, I won’t stop feeling
— Franz Ferdinand – Can’t Stop Feeling



So you’ll probably see in these photos both in how late I’m posting them and the general look of them…there’s something off. Well you would be 100% correct. The trouble with doing b&w developing at home using the same change bag for four years now is that they can fall apart. Well the trusty thing finally did and I ended up with a few heavily fogged rolls of film. While week 12 was completely destroyed (and you won’t be seeing it) week 13 didn’t suffer as badly and I could recover at least seven images and with a bit of Photoshop wizardry was able to pull something decent.



But for those who are fans and listeners of the Film Photography Podcast you’ll probably recognize the town, that’s right, we’re in lovely Findlay, Ohio! Home of such amazing spots at Imagine That, The Mecca, and the Jones Mansion. Not to mention the famous University of Findlay and the beautiful Hancock County Courthouse. While it was a generally cold morning, I still managed to get myself out and shooting before meeting up with Leslie before continuing home. Also of more interesting note, the captain’s bathtub from the USS Maine lives here in Findlay!
