Happy Thanksgiving Friends!I know we are not all Americans visiting here today, but I’m thankful for you! The last few months have been really busy for me and thank you for hanging in with me as I slowed down on my blogging a bit. I know that once January comes, I will be back on track. This fall brought so many transitions that really ate a lot of time. But, I’m coming back to participate in all the link ups soon!
We are spending our Thanksgiving in Florida visiting family. It’s been 8 years since I had a summer-like Thanksgiving, so I thought I would bring summer back to you today. I have some summer film bloopers to share because a hot Thanksgiving feels a bit like a blooper to me after years of cool ones.
I’m still working on my film skills with the vintage cameras I have. Like seriously, no bells or whistles. So, that can cause some bloopers. That and stupid things I have done personally that I cannot blame on the camera.
Like opening the back of the camera before the film was fully rewound. I thought I heard the tell tale click. I was wrong. But hey, some people add light leak filters to their photos. Maybe I’m ahead.
And then there is when Ektar 100’s red gets overdone on skin. They look so creepy in the eyes. But…doesn’t Jasper look like Macaulay here?
Even though these are full of imperfections, I still love them because they are part of our memories. Preserved memories are our treasures. I’ve gotten brave and only brought film with me on this trip to Florida. All Ekatar 100 in all it’s red toned goodness. I decided that film would help me be more in the moment without worrying about taking so many shots. If it isn’t something I want captured I won’t bother, because, um…film. I love film for my personal work because it allows me to slow down and be selective. I’ve got two rolls out at The Find Lab now and I can’t wait to share those soon…bloopers and all! What’s up with you?
