the internet.

I finally have the internet at my new place! I am so excited! It has been a long and treacherous week without being able to go online, look at blogs, find new recipes, watch shows.
A blogger without the internet, yes I didn't know what to do with myself. An iPhone will not always suffice, especially after the new intern at work knocks it into a big batch of muffin batter.

That is it, my exciting news of the day.

And here are a few more scans from the second roll of film I got developed. The first two are from when I when to brunch with Stephanie, Desserts for Breakfast, and Jackie, A Happy Day.

These were the only two film photos I took that day. They both were taking photos like crazy yet I for some reason got that 'meeting new people, awkwardness taking over, can't take photos' feeling. But I love these two shots and should have taken more.

The other shot is one I had taken of flowers on some random street in St. Helena after one of my first days of work. Now those same flowers are right across from where I live.

haha, if you mean "taking photos like crazy" to be 10 frames, which is about all I got from that morning.

<3 your three frames!

I love your pictures! And film photography is so difficult and frustrating! If you get the time please visit my blog too :)

I love the use of expired film, the colors just look amazing with it. And there's a sort of unexpected result one don't know about it.

These are all gorgeous photos! I want to experiment with film, but the price & uncertainty has always put me off. They really do have a magical feeling to them.

Oh man, to be a blogger without the internet is just brutal. Glad to hear it's back up! Your photos are lovely as always!

The ambiance you've captured is just sooo lovely -- these photos remind me how much I love film even though it can be so frustrating!

love the second picture! :D

Jacqueline said...

just saw this! and haha at the "meeting new people, awkwardness taking over" feeling -- i totally feel ya. i guess i must've felt the same thing; i literally took 7 photos that day, which is like nothing for me.

anyway, great shots. :)

Lovely photos. I am a film user also. Have never gone digital. I hope film (and film processing) will be around as long as I'm alive.

BTW, how long past the expiration date was the film you used? I always wonder if it's "OK" to use older film. Your photos prove that it is! (still interested to know just HOW old, though!)

@ miranda: thank you!
I'm not sure how old mine was, probably 5-10 years old. I've never had a problem with expired film. I've used ones that were seriously 20 years expired and they are fine.

Miranda said...

Thank YOU! This is a revelation, to be sure. Also very liberating. :-) I'm eager to try it, based on your inspiration. Thanks again!
