When I Carried Two Cameras

in photography •  last year

I miss film. I miss the stifling darkness when winding my precious film onto the spindle and placing it in the developing can. I miss the water running, the gentle agitating of the film and the anxiety I always felt right before the final wash. I miss taking my developed film out of the drying cabinet into the darkroom. I miss the smell of fixer. I miss the magic of seeing an image develop right in front of my eyes. I miss exposing the image a second time, to tweak it just a little bit more. Photography was so beguiling to me in the beginning, because it is a hand crafted work of art. I miss carrying my two cameras. #film is not dead
