I just got back my first role of film, or rather the first roll of film I've taken since college. At the risk of sounding terribly corny/ pretentious/ trite, it felt like coming home.
They are grainy and muddy and underexposed. And yet, I love them. I love them in a way I have maybe never loved another set of photos. I'm excited and inspired and feeling almost panicky. I just want to shoot more. I want to see the results. I want to get better. And when I'm ready to come take pictures of your family with an old film camera, I want to break your heart and give you back pictures that make you feel the same things I'm feeling now.
