One Sometimes Forgets.

How incredibly comforting film can be.
After looking at Alicia J. Rose‘s images for a while, I dug out a roll of 400 ISO film I had and loaded up the camera. I had originally intended to shoot at the Richmond Highland Games and Celtic Festival but my plans were stymied by my daughter who had no desire to go.
A willing colleague of mine stepped in and allowed me to use the roll during lunch one afternoon earlier this week. I didn’t have anything special in mind, but I really liked the feel of this and wanted to see if I could replicate it.
Eventually, this shot should be redone with a bigger influence of cycling in the background, but for the moment it and the icon shot that accompany it are pleasant to me.
I really love film and the instant gratification of digital is sometimes so inviting that I forget how the film feels. It’s nice to get back to my first love.
