I’ve started my second month of shooting a 365 on film, and I’m very happy about it still. It’s such a slow and steady process that film, and one that I think is teaching me more about lessons in patience. I know this will be a never ending one for me. With that patience is also a hell of a lot of fun. Waiting for the film to come back is kind of the greatest. I smile all the way to the mailbox to drop it off.
Really I do.
A few weeks back, my youngest, Phoenix had a friend over. I grabbed my camera to take a picture of them. Phoenix’s friend, asked to see the picture, to which Phoenix replied ” Oh you can’t, it’s a film camera, my mom shoots film. ” Heart melt. And Heart Cheer. A shiny moment for sure.
Earlier this week someone contacted me because I shoot a lot with my Canon AV-1, my dad’s camera. A lovely gal in who lives in Portland. She just got the same camera and was looking for some advice. That moment, made my heart soar. Passion for film photography made that happen. And that was awesome to me.
Last week we had an epic ice and snow storm which caused a crazy amount of power outages. We lost our power for two whole days, but many lost power for 5 or more. In the midst of that I forgot to share my fave pictures from January, my favorite five on five. I’m happy to include some film. Here they are.
Ok there’s 6 there. But they were all faves.
And now here’s a few more from my film project, some of the latest I’ve shared.
I highly recommend you click on over to see what some of the other gals were up to last month . Here’s a link to the lovely Jill McAdoo.
Here’s to a happy week.
