guess what i just realized?
the color in my 35mm film shots are so cool not because of my funky vintage camera, but because i'm using expired film. i don't know why i didn't even think that the film i've had for over 3 years might somehow make my images look different? but, i love it and i am suddenly very sad that there is only two rolls left. to celebrate my new discovery and to enjoy my last rolls, i joined the expired film flickr group!
above are two really neat theaters in seattle and the bottom photo is behind my work. i like being reminded that seattle has age and character, amidst all the new modern looking condos and shopping complexes. sometimes i like to imagine that i am my grandma when she was young, going downtown and seeing the big city. or that i see what my great-grandpa saw every day when he went to work. the old, the brick, the rust, the class--they're important. i'm glad my film can retell that antiquity.
have you seen adie loves polly yet? do.
