I have not had a working camera for approximately 7-ish months now. Let me tell you – it sucks huuuge. I am finding I have like no pictures from the last 7 months making it very hard to scrapbook and blog about myself. Unfortunately since there are times, especially now as I reach the end of the year I can barely afford to eat (slight exaggeration) a new camera does not quite fit into the student budget. Luckily when I go home to my parents I can use theirs (even though the frequency of this is far to little to have any real effect on my need/craving to take pictures) and I have really been itching lately to take some pictures.
This weekend I am heading home for Easter and I am really excited to be able to take some pictures (especially since the weather is supposed to be fantastic). Even more so film has been inspiring me a lot lately and I am thinking I will bust out my dad’s old pentax and do some shooting in film of my families Easter celebrations.
I just love the imperfections that you can get with a roll of film that you can’t get (as easily) with a digital. Here are some lovely film shots from flickr that have been inspiring me as of late:
Kara’s lovelies were taken on a disposable.. Maybe that should be my first foray back into the magic world of film?
What are you itching to do these days?
ps i love you.

My friend Elsie is doing a pinhole camera DIY this week. I am super excited to see what she has come up with and try it myself!!
More fun with film. I’m obsessed.
