Dolphin Beach Art

Our old film camera has been out of service for a lil' while so we thought we'd take it out for a test drive with some expired Kodak Supra 400's we found in a stash of our brother's things. There will always be something magical about shooting with film as opposed to digital. It seems a little dust of that moment (with all emotions involved) is encapsulated in the 6x4 before you. There's always a sense of anticipation/surprise of how the photos will turn out. This batch is fresh from the developers, then the scanner. A particularly peaceful and quiet day at the beach.

reminds me of a supertacky camera nerd site quote: "shooting digital is like masturbation, shooting film is like having sex" ..
but yeah, actually having i second you on the feeling.
i decided while ago that i'm only gonna shoot film the next months (since i currently also have the possibility to develop the films myself). so, film yay ! prettypretty.


The pictures turned out lovely.
I really want to get myself a good camera this year and lear how to take photos.
You always have such beautiful photos.
