This image, and the other Olympus 35 RC / Portra 800 shots I’m posting at present, were all shot on the fateful day that I broke my ankle back in August. The ankle is almost fully healed now – it still aches a little in the morning but otherwise gives me little or no discomfort whatsoever, and I’ve been able to walk around on it just fine for a couple of weeks or more. It did prevent me from going out and taking photographs for a while though.

Luckily for me, I had shot three rolls of film not long before on the trip to the Yorkshire coast my wife and I had taken, so was able to keep images flowing on the blog, but I had concerns that I would start to run out if I didn’t get back on my feet quickly. I also had the roll of film that I’d been shooting while in Manchester on the day I had my accident. I’d shot the majority of the frames by the time my ankle went snap and shot the remaining few images while limping back to the station and the final two frames outside the hospital back in Sheffield while waiting for my wife to pick me up. I’m fortunate that many of the pictures on this roll are ones I like and am happy to publish. I’m also happy about this because it might give me enough photos to populate a zine for the zine-swap I’m due to take part in soon.

I’ve since managed to shoot another couple of rolls of film, one which I’ve delveloped today, so the blog still has a reasonable supply to choose from, which is nice.

The picture below is one of the photos I was really pleased with from the roll. The colours are great, I think it’s an interesting image, and there’s quite a bit of detain to nosey around at if you’re so inclined.
