Expired Film Roll: 2014-2017

I’ve had a love affair with film photography for a few years now. When I was 17 I even tried to create a blog about it, but that ultimately failed because its price to develop always deterred me.

So that means, I’ll use a single roll of film over the course of years…leaving the film expired and giving me a mini time capsule to sort through when I finally get them developed.

After three years, I finally got this roll of film developed, I saw photos of my 18th birthday, moving my sister out to Colorado, exploring Birmingham with one of my best friends, and having my first vacation with my boyfriend. I felt a surge of nostalgia, and my love of the medium has only grown.

Now that I’m “deeper into” photography, I realize I have a huge heads up on taking quality images via film rather than DSLR–my mom and dad invested in lenses in the 80’s so now I don’t have too. Thanks parents!

Like vinyl for listening to music, film is a way to connect with your surroundings in a more natural state, you snap the image, and you won’t see it again for awhile–much like life.

So, here’s what I developed.

Have a wonderful Sunday, and enjoy every minute of your life, you’ll be happy you did.
