Gone Analog

Our family spent the last Spring Break in Boston. While I usually think of vacations as a week-long photo opportunity I was feeling weighed down by my DSLRs – both physically and psychically. I opted to take along two smaller cameras and use the expired Fuji film from the bottom of my refrigerator. The resulting images are mine but are somehow feel more fragile, the palette subtle. It was a liberating experience and one that reminded me that it's okay to do this differently. There was no instant image rendered, the noise was minimal and I couldn't resort to a pop of the flash to add interest. And I had to wait. It took months before I processed the film and discovered what Boston had been; a chilly getaway and a place to breathe.
