One of my goals for my 24th year of life is to take more film photos.
I love anxiously waiting to see how photos will turn out. I love the graininess that film naturally gives photos. And, though it’s expensive to buy film and pay developing fees, I really like the permanency of printed photos.
I fondly remember nights sitting in my parents’ laundry room going through the boxes of photos by mom has stored there. The little glimpses of my parents before I was born and of me before I remember truly fascinated me. And I just really, really love the idea of my future children and grandchildren being able to do the same.
These are some photos from my most recent roll of film:
I’m so honored to be featured on Freshly Pressed!
An introduction: I’m a 20-something newlywed social worker doing foster care and adoption work while living in the lovely Midwest. The husband is a med student, and he is, by far, my favorite person. He blogs here from time to time.
I am also… a daughter of the Living God, an orphan advocate, a wannabe adoptive mom, a huge fan of my church, a resident of St. Louis City, a good music/movie/book lover, a film photography hobbyist.
