For the last few months I have been using my film camera to document moments of my life. I’ve been documenting the simple times that I see and experience; I photograph for me and me alone. If you haven’t tried it, it’s a pretty refreshing experience. With the current age of Facebook and Insta-everything, it’s a breath of fresh air to capture things for the sake of capturing them. Our life is full of those ‘off-moments’. These are the quiet times we spend by ourselves and with loved ones. There’s no social rating system or view recorder. There are no opinionated internet folks to point out the obvious. It’s just a feeling and a snap.

After a long wait between taking photos and finally seeing them, all those memories start flooding back. The smells, the smiles, and the times when you’re taking things slowly become as tangible as the film those moments were recorded on. Flipping through photographs is like falling in love: there are mistakes, surprises, and a knowing that everything will be alright.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be more active (less lazy) regarding posting. I have a short review, photos, and more random thoughts coming through. I may even throw in a sketch or two. Here's a couple   for now!
