24 Hour Roll

I’d been having a blast taking my Vivitar PN2011 toy camera around while on my bike rides and bike errands around town.  Having been a big fan of street and documentary photography, my bike rides have been offering me new opportunities to photograph every day life in Orange County.  I’m not talking about those Housewives or rich kids down in the south part, but the north part of the OC.  The not so glamours.  Not so guilded and golden.  The dirty streets of Beach and Harbor.  The hispanic/latin neighborhoods of Santa Ana and the foreign shores of little Saigon.

I’d already finished off one roll of home rolled film from a good friend, dizzy, had given me.  I took it on some rides and loved what I got, that I’d posted about here.   While sitting in my little photo shed/work room, whatever you want to call it, I’d gotten the idea to take my Nikonos IV-A along for a ride.

Along with the camera I took along the Nikkor 35mm f/2.5 and a roll of Arista Edu Ultra 400 film.  24 exposures, just enough but not to much.  I’d been graciously gifted the film by another awesome friend over in the #believeinfilm community on Twitter.  Tony had just given me the film and I’d wanted to share with him what I got, and see for myself.  I made sure I was gonna develop it the same day I’d finished it.

My girlfriend and I had a few errands to do that would take us on a 15 mile, round trip loop.  I’d taken this trip once before and knew it would be a great chance to shoot some street photos.

The next day came around and I hadn’t finished the roll yet.  14 photos taken but I still had 10 more to take, wanting to get the film developed that night I took the Nikonos IV-A along to the grocery store.
