I was looking through some of my photos recently and found this whole batch from a roll I shot last summer. I love that when you shoot film, you take your time, you carry your camera all around the country. I love that you forget the exact shots you shoot and how you felt when you did. I love that when you get the roll developed a week or two or three later, maybe you don’t remember exactly what’s on there. I love that when you start looking through the photos the memories and laughter come back so easily.
These first few shots are from a weekend in Málaga last summer. It was the last trip I had planned with Avra, and we spent the entire weekend laughing, drinking beer, eating fried fish, exploring beaches of Málaga, buying a magic glowing wand on the beach at 3 in the morning and sleeping in a four-star hotel. It makes me happy and sad to see these photos. What wonderful memories, and what a sharp reminder that throughout your life, the people who mean the most to you drift in and drift out.
And this photo, and those that follow, are from three weeks I spent in La Coruña last summer. It was a sunny three weeks, and these photos have me dreaming of warm beaches all over again.
Finding these photos gave me a nice little break from the winter weather, and they reminded me how much I love film. Hope to be shooting a little bit more and adding some more daily-life photos to the blog. Cheers to film, to photos and to the inspiration they bring.
