A guy called Iron Maiden | March 10, 2007

I promised I would start posting something more interesting and starting today I'll be posting shots from a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus that's had a long history. I suppose these shots will not be everyone's cup of tea, but I'm pretty damn happy with them.

I've got several rolls of film sitting in my fridge that have been there since the dawn of time. I loaded up my Canon AE-1 with a roll and set out to do some street photography with my new Canon 28mm f/2.8 lens. What I didn't know is that my mother had already exposed the roll in another camera, thought it wasn't working, and somehow rewound it with the leader still out. My first reaction after developing the film was that all my pictures were ruined (well, actually it was more like, WTF?), but then I realized eerily beautiful and disturbing these pictures are. So there, accidental multiple exposure. Try that with digital.

This is the first shot on the roll. I didn't realize Iron Maiden is still around.

Eddie lives! I remember being paid $20 back in high school (1984-ish) to draw the cover of Iron Maiden Killers for a class mate ... it was downright creepy to do!
