I went on my first of three mission trips to Mexico 13 years ago, riding this bus nonstop from Indiana. We even slept, badly, on its cramped seats. But now this bus is discarded, moldering in a field.

Hazelwood church is in farm country about a half hour west of Indianapolis and a few minutes south of US 40. It’s a surprisingly large and active church for being so rural.

I used to pass a sprawling school on my way to work. These trees are on its grounds. One foggy morning when I had a camera with me, they looked like this.

love the dark mood in this shot. The tree-branch canopy makes my neighborhood feel so foreboding.

March 15 was Expired Film Day. More about that tomorrow, but here’s a photo from downtown Zionsville that I shot on a roll of very expired Kodak Tri-X.

Here’s another photo from the mystery camera. Its lens surely had some endearing qualities, as this photo shows. Especially this photo makes me wish I could remember which camera I used!

It finally happened: I got a roll back from the processor and could not remember which camera I used to shoot it. I went on a shooting jag in January and February, with five or six cameras loaded at once. And then I had company one night and tidied up and put away whatever camera I used on this roll. I remember well shooting many of the images, such as this one. But I can’t call up which camera was in my hands.
