This is a sample from my personal photographic archive, posted as one of over a thousand examples of my photography here on EMULSIVE. While occasionally pretty to look at, these photographs mostly serve to show some of what’s possible with film photography.

    1. It was already on the lens, so more a case of “can’t be bothered to remove it”, than artistic choice 😂

  1. Eric, I appreciate the regular comments and feedback you leave on the website. Thank you. I have, however, noticed a growing trend of including commentary aimed specifically against China in your notes. I must ask you to refrain from making these comments in the future. There are other, more suited forums for airing your grievances. Let’s keep it about the photography.

  2. I love this kind of found subject. Many people say the selective focus thing is too much, but in a world where most photos are shot on cell phones with almost hyperfocus, this kind of shot stands out.
