film photography

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.
