film.

there is something so magical about film.
real film!
although water cameras aren't tough to find...
developers are.
after a week of searching, & another week-plus of waiting,
i finally picked up our pictures!

i forgot how exciting the anticipation is:
"what's going to be inside this envelope?!"
i forgot that the negatives spill onto the floor.
oh, and i forgot how expensive processing is.

i love that some pictures are black,
off-center,
eyes are closed,
hair is wonky...
& there's really nothing i can do about any of it.

i think i love the mystery of each shot counting.
the rarity of the anticipation.
the winding of the camera.
the grainyness of the film...
(*how great is it that mike looks like he's on the world's wildest waterslide?)
 this turtle? i stepped on him. sorry, mister! he totally scared the bajeebes out of me.

  1. I love these photos. I agree, with digital we look for perfection too often. Sometimes the mishaps make the best pictures!
