Old Film

I finally developed some old film dating back to 2007 to maybe 2011. Obviously, these guesses are completely inaccurate. What matters was my joy with the way the came out. I was slightly nervous that time would have taken a rough toll on my film rolls being that they are quite old and have been sitting around in different temperatures. Fortunately, they were unharmed (except for one roll but it looked interesting instead of ruined). I'd love to share them with your hungry eyes.

 This was an accidental overexposure which made me very excited.

These were all taken on the same day. It was quite a hike but it felt amazing to be surrounded by beauty for a full day. To be able to just bask in nature's aura gives me a sense of sweet serenity. I can't wait to be able to do this again once the snow is all gone.

I hope you enjoyed the results of my adventure.

Melancholic Winter Woes

Wow, I finally made a blog. I've been eager to do this for quite some time now but for some reason the idea always intimidated me. Of course, that caused me to talk myself out of it every time I was about to start one. But here I am now eager to talk about anything and everything.
It's been so cold lately and mother earth has been cruel to tease me. I'm surrounded by over a foot of snow, maybe two feet, and yet I see red breasted robins all over. A sign that spring is soon to come. I'm yearning for the warmth of spring and the life of the earth to soon bloom and grow. I found a few snapshots I took a few years ago of flowers that I never touched. As a result, I finally touched them to depict my yearning for spring but the effect of the gloom of late winter.

I hope you enjoyed your first glimpse inside my current melancholy mindset. Do not fear, there will be more cheerful photos to come as the weather warms up. Until then, I'll be sulking over these photos with a nice, tall glass of Pinot Noir.
