It’s the last day of the year and it smells of beetroot in the kitchen. As long as I can remember (and probably even before) my parents made a certain kind of beetroot salad for New Year’s Eve. I don’t particularly like beetroot, but for me the smell of beetroot is the smell of New Year’s Eve. Speaking of kitchen related adventures: My mum and I actually managed to make our own mayonnaise today. Although the procedure is actually very simple, all my previous attempts failed. Just like in film development the wrong temperature (of the egg yolk) can ruin everything!

Sounds exciting? Well, you see, after having a long series of disappointing attempts to have an exciting New Year’s Eve I have given up that notion and just go with nice food and watching the fireworks. Food: Wild boar chops, diverse salads (including egg salad made with homemade mayonnaise) and some fruit.

I also want to try taking pictures tonight, but I assume that the fireworks themselves aren’t going to be too exciting around here (apart from the usual suspects who find it funny to throw firecrackers at people). I’ll just take a roll of colour film with me and see what happens.

All pictures taken with: Olympus XA, F.Zuiko 35mm f/2.8.

I don’t know what that’s about either. Is it supposed to hold up the building?

  • My rate of success in making my own mayonnaise is 1:4 more roles: 1 times it works, the others…

      Have a great new year too, Robert! Well, so far the success rate has been 2:1 with the failures prevailing. My success rate with film development is much higher 😉 The mayonnaise yesterday was really nice though!

  • Some nice colour shots- you’re really into colour now. And Snappy New Year.

      To you also a Snappy New Year, Steve ( loved that 😀 )! It’s kinda skewed with the colour vs black and white these days, because I was so curious about the colour results and scanned more of them lately. I still don’t shoot much colour actually and if I have black and white film available I still prefer that!
