2014 on 35mm film
(no street style allowed*)

In past years, I’ve ran multiple posts covering year-end retrospectives of different aspects of photography I’d done for that year. There have been street style retrospectives, models off duty look-backs, I even did a retrospective once solely devoted to fashionable men. Leading up to this New Year’s Eve, I’ve given just a little thought to this and how I’d perhaps want to cap off 2014 on 35mm film; after all, this was a kind of a big year, considering it was the first full year that Lord Ashbury became a full-time job. But I’ve already written about my journey and challenges working on my own, and I’ve already done retrospectives on models, runways and the city of Paris. So this year, I’ve decided to do just one retrospective and do it a little differently. First, I’m dedicating this post to 35mm film, as it’s been the source of much inspiration since I came into possession of a Pentax K1000 this summer. (No, it’s not a Leica; but I don’t shoot with Canon or L-glass, either.) In order to fully realise this post the way that I’d like, I’ve opted to include some of my favourite 35mm film frames from this year, many of which have never been published, or are film B-sides of digital images that were.
Happy New Year.
Here’s to a safe, happy and memorable 2015.
