|Rosemary & Alexandra 1969|
Today is January 12 2022. I woke up early so as to make my 7:30 appointment with my ophthalmologist Dr. Simon Warner. I will have new glasses next week.
Having these activities keeps me distracted and they give me a purpose from one day to the next. It is only when it gets dark early in the evening, and I get the cats in, that somehow I have time in my hands and feel a bit lost.
So that is when I cross my small deck into my oficina to sort through negatives of the family in Mexico from a faraway past.
I believe that we humans are so, because we have the ability to associate and to find patterns. Today’s involve double negs that sit next to other double negs. The first three are on one strip of six exposures. Thirty five millimeter film had either 20 or 36 exposures. I would cut them in sixes in order to make those contacts of old.
Three of the strips make sense but the last one does not. I know they are Rosemary’s lovely legs. It seems I was experimenting with reflections on a window and I can discern a kettle!
