Vintage Friday

Raise your hand if you miss film. Is yours up? Mine is up - way up.

Some day I’ll get back into shooting with it and developing it. In fact ideas are already forming on that front. I may not set it up the way I used to with the trays in the bathtub and enlarger sitting on my toilet, but I will develop black and white film again and print my own grainy photos on beautiful archival paper. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking digital I love love love digital. It’s made life so much easier in so many ways, but downloading a memory card will never replace the feeling of excitement of seeing a photo appear on a sheet of photo paper in a darkroom.

So, this Vintage Friday is a small tribute to film cameras borrowed from a collector and not even dusted off.
