For The Love of Film …

My love of film started from waaaay back.

Yes, this was my First Camera and no I do not have it anymore =( …

I used to ride my bike to get my photos from the Fotomat. I would put the envelope with my name on it in my basket and ride home floating on air: I had pictures that I took that I could hold in my hands.

And yes I remember these commercials …

Everything seems to be Digital now and I am sad to admit that even if I have my DSLR I instinctively grab for my iPhone to take a picture.

For my last shoot Evan asked me to find polaroids to use as Props. Really easy for me to do, as of course I have a Polaroid Album, aheem. As I went through my Polaroids, my gaze went to my many many other photo albums and I had to stop myself from going through them.

I have dragged this chest around with me for almost 20 years …

… And Yes I’m that organized

What a better place or reason for me to revisit my beloved film pics then for here!

Scanned Polaroid, 1980 – Something

Taken the Summer of Junior Year in HS? I used to stay with my Auntie in Queens, NYC + this was across the street from her apartment.

I loved that Vintage Tuxedo Jacket + long dangly earrings: I still wish I had both: I was in my Sade Phase.
