52 Rolls Week 7:52

I decided to use my Minolta XD-11 for a special project I am working on.  So I pulled it out to find an unfinished roll of 36 exposure film.  I took the last couple of shots and sent it in for processing.


Lo and Behold!  A ‘Lost Roll’ from last year’s gardening. As I am starting my seedlings for this year in my little indoor habitats (the growing season here is very short so you have to start veggies indoors).  I thought, let’s post this to remind us of the Spring and Summer to come:

As you can see I maintain a Butterfly and Bee friendly garden.  One of my neighbors keeps Honey Bees and they are ever present visitors to my front yard.  Fortunately, since Honey Bees are not aggressive, I can do my garden maintenance with out risk of stings.

I do my veggie gardening in raised planter boxes in the backyard.  My husband built those boxes to save my garden from our ravenous cotton tail bunnies. You can view his construction journey here.


Let’s finish up in the front yard.  The Sunflower ‘volunteered’ from a neighbor’s birdseed.  I certainly didn’t plant it, but I did enjoy it.


Tech Info: Minolta XD-11, Kodak Portra 160 35 mm film; a variety of lenses; Developed and scanned by Old School Photo Labs.

  1. Thanks, it’s my favorite too, so I placed it at the end as a sort of ‘Grand Finale’. I probably have more lost rolls in some of my other 35 mm cameras.
