Hidden treasure – Found treasure

It’s been two months. Only two months. Two months already. Two months since we had to say goodbye forever to Noukie.

I still have 3 or 4 rolls of film to develop that may or may not contain photos of her. I don’t know. On one hand, I’m anxious to find out, to develop them and see if there are any “new” pictures of Noukie. On the other hand, I want to postpone the task, because even if there are any photos of her, they will be amongst the last “new” photos of Noukie ever. It’s a strange thing. Or maybe it’s not strange at all.

Yesterday, I developed one of these rolls. Actually an experiment, Lomo 110 Orca film of which I bought a few rolls when it first came on the market. Certainly not my first 110 film, but certainly my first black and white 110 film. Rather “lo-fi”, but that’s all in the game of the small 110 format.

And there it was, amongst shots of landscapes and backyard: a single photo of Noukie. And here it is, that single photo. We still miss you.

    Had the same thing happen with me too, Jacco, except in digital time and not analog 🙂 I can’t remember if it was a week or two weeks after my Li’l Girl passed on, that I found I had a photo taken of her on my iPhone, taken a week before she died.

    Been about three and a half months, since… Still quiet. Though, something strange (to me) – I actually have had thoughts pop in and out of my head of getting another… Something I swore I would never do again… Kind of surprising me that the thoughts have been had by me.
