I haven’t developed a roll of film in, um, I don’t know… maybe 5 years? And let’s not get too excited here or anything, but I finally got a roll of Holga pics developed over the weekend. Even though they’re not GREAT, it’s still amazing how different the quality is, in comparison to digital.
Holga is amazing. I’m totally hooked and kicking myself for not shooting 100 rolls in the last few years. The first roll I shot, I dropped on the ground when I took it out of the camera, before I had a chance to seal the roll… so it unrolled itself on the way down to the floor. Sweet! Then I opened the back of the camera on accident in the middle of the next roll. And now I have this roll, which is a year old. I waited forever to develop these because it’s hard to find a lab that develops 120 film these days! It turns out that one of the few places in LA that still does it is right next to my house. I have a new favorite photo lab.
And now I’m inspired to go through the last 9 months of pictures and get started on Dashiell’s baby album. Maybe it will be a project over the holidays when we’re in Mammoth. It will be do sad if I don’t ever print his photos. I still love looking through the albums my parents have from our first years.
