Like a breath of fresh air….. a jolly good slap in the face. God how many excuses did I need to make in my head, its too cold, I’m too tired, there’s too much work to be done…. thats all they were….damn excuses. \
I have been hunting for my photo mojo and it kept ducking and diving avoiding me like the plague… I bring it with me to organized shoots, but how come I wasn’t doing anything for me? So I made a decision, all be it a rather crazy decision, I decided I wanted to go back to the old days (1999) and give film another shot (pardon the pun). A few months back I had my eye on a camera that made my heart flutter…. it was a must have…. a yearning… sleepless nights… sadly I had to prioritize my life and the ‘deal’ fell through. I flunked into a bad mood and forgot about how important it was (to me) until I found another…. just the same…. and the time was right…. cha ching!!
Today 20 rolls of 220 medium format film arrived to greet my brand new CONTAX 645 (swooon) I am officially a medium format camera owner!!! And today I went shooting!!! I couldn’t get out the door quick enough, like a deep big breath of really really fresh air… all my mind would scream was GOD I NEED YOU NOW!!!
The downside (or upside depending on how you look at things…. glass half full yadda yadda) film is a process and needs to be processed. Due to my perfection I will be sending it to the US of A. SO no examples as yet however when they do come back and if I am game enough to share (encouragement needed) I will post them. However I did bring my lifeline digital camera to the shoot… soooo here are a few of my perfect girl… oh and by the way there were no animals harmed in the making of this post!!! xxxx
