A roll of film a month | June [...]

Let's not beat around the bush and admit from the beginning that my photography project for 2017, the one of shooting at least one roll of film a month, hit bottom this summer so, yes, a more correct title for this post would be 'A roll of film a month | June, July, and August'. It started to go wrong when, only a few days before the end of June, I ruined my last T-Max 400 while loading it in my too long neglected Zero 2000 pinhole camera. Fast-forwarding to the first Sunday in July, just before going out to see the Dun Laoghaire Regatta, I reached for an ISO 50 film because the day was luminous enough for it. It tuned out I should have given less thought to the weather and more to the fact that the film was a 35mm as it took me all summer to shoot all its 36 poses!
