A very special set of doubles with two very similar people. A few months ago J-easy and myself discovered each other through the “Do You Like It?” rumble. Although many of us just liked a few photos on a page and then left I continued to venture further into his lomohome and was more and more captivated.
Not necessarily by his photos but by the contents of his photos. Even though we lived on opposite sides of the country, we seemed to have so much in common. My first thing that I realized is that our camera collections matched one another’s quite well. We both favored our Yashica TLR’s and both owned a Canon AE-1. After chatting a bit he told me that his AE-1 was his father’s old camera. Strangely enough, so was mine. On top of all of this we both took photos of a special someone who liked to shoot a Diana Mini. Things just became creepily similar to me.
So I thought that it would be extremely interesting to link our photos which were so similar in content and form and shoot a roll of doubles. J-easy started off a roll of Ilford Delta Pro 400 on his AE-1 and then proceeded to send it to me via ol’ skool snail mail and I would finish the roll on my AE-1.

Someday, getting rid of unwanted memories will be as easy as popping a pill and waiting a few hours for the desired effect to kick in. Literally a bitter pill to swallow (you'd think that with all the advancements in science then, they would've already made, say, fruit-flavored ones like the vitamins you loved as a kid), sure, but effective nonetheless.

It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
