About once each week, I go back and forth on whether or not to sell my Olympus Pen-FT – the half frame SLR that I wanted so badly. I had dreams of magical diptychs and making short rolls of weird film specifically for the Pen.
But as it turns out, I’m not very good at putting images together – at least not in the field. And I never got around to short rolling.
These shots of a rotting old piano could easily lead me into the false sense that I can actually pull this off. But looking more honestly at it, it would be hard to take any two random photos of a rotting piano and not have them complement each other.
I need to purge myself of a few cameras this winter. The Olympus Pen-FT might indeed be one of them.
