I hadn’t taken any pictures with film in a long time – maybe 25 or 30 years. My friend Bruce gave me (yes, gave me) a Nikon film camera with a case and a roll of film. It took me forever (actually only a couple of months, but still too long) to actually load the film and go out looking for something to photograph. I think I was scared I wouldn’t remember how to do film anymore. I ended up shooting a couple of rolls, but only about half of them were worth keeping.
I like the look of the film photos. The grain visible in them reminds of pictures from my past – the ones my Mom and Dad took of us when we were kids.
