Film photos

Fast forward a decade and a half, to an era when film is as nearly extinct as the planet we photograph it with, and I open that box to find twelve rolls of Ilford HP5 black and white negative film: seven of 36 exposures, five of 24, a total of 372 exposures to last me one single run around the sun. One for every day, and a week of wiggle room… More at PetaPixel.

No digital camera can recreate the film finish in any photo, but like almost everyone else I still go for the convenience and immediacy of my phone camera above a better end result. Sad really.
