Amsterdam Film Diary

_20_0347

 

It is safe to say I’m kind of in love with Amsterdam. It sounds incredibly odd but looking back on these film shots gives me nostalgia – even though I am back in Amsterdam right now. There is something special about carrying around several rolls or used or new film in my already overweight luggage, trying to remind myself to shoot more film over digital, and of course waiting weeks to find a developing lab and then hours or days to see what may or may not have came out properly. Though ‘properly’ is a word not too appropriate with what I love about film- the light leaks and graininess are what makes me love it so much. Having a blog and shooting digital all the time seemingly only posting the ‘perfect’ shot it is refreshing to have to be happy with what you get. And I always am!

    Like you; when I look at my pictures of Amsterdam-I get those feelings of “nostalgia”! I love Amsterdam and wish that I had taken more picture’s.
