One of my greatest loves is film photography
Don't get me wrong, digital is on its own awesome level, but to me film and digital are still worlds apart.
I guess I can be compared to one of those people who will never quite get over the feeling of an e-reader as compared to the feel of the worn pages of a good old fashioned book nestled in my hands as I read on the couch.
In the same way, I love the feeling and look of a developed photo, not a printed one, or one on a computer screen - its just not the same.
Another one of my favorite things about our old family film photos is when I am looking through bins and bins of old photos that are shadowy and over exposed, magically I will come across one that is absolutely magnificent - as if everything came together right at that instant to make a perfect picture.
Whoever took the photo probably had little idea of just how amazing it would look to my eyes twenty years down the road.
Here are a few of my favorite family film photos, digitized for your blog viewing pleasure.
