Five years ago, my husband and I made the trip to Djenné. It was only when I was cleaning up the photos I had taken using a little Sony Cybershot that I realised that I had brought along The Big Camera, too.
The Big Camera was a Pentax P30T that I had bought back in 1991. I thoroughly enjoyed it despite not really knowing how to use it. I only replaced it with a DSLR two years ago. It did, however, die long before that.
Due to moving home, lots of travel and various other changing circumstances, I had taken the film out of the camera and put it somewhere safe… I discovered this final roll of film a few weeks ago whilst unpacking furniture and stuff we had shipped over from South Africa to Scotland.
…Hmmm, I wonder what’s on here?
What you are about to see are the final frames taken using this Pentax P30T, as is. Save for cropping the edges, I have decided not to attempt to manipulate them in any way whatsoever in Photoshop.
