Reyes © Joel ThomasonLast week I had my film from the Dominican Republic processed. I was hesitant to work through those pictures for two reasons. First, I found out that I incorrectly wound some of the film. Maybe I've always been doing it wrong, I don't know. But two of the 35mm rolls didn't come out. The Holga stuff came out just fine, though. So I'm a little embarrassed about the mistake, but I'll work through it by coming clean here on the blog. Second, I wasn't as excited about how a lot of the pictures came out. I'll just use the excuse that all of my good pictures were on the rolls that were incorrectly wound in the camera! But I'm posting them anyway in an attempt for feedback and for the sake of giving people a glimpse of what the Dominican was like.
I'll be getting a lot of the pictures up on my Flickr page soon. In the meantime, the picture above is of a friend I made named Reyes. He gave me a motorcycle ride around Herrera, where we worked. That's him and his motorcycle.
