One of the most delightful feelings in the world is picking up photos from a roll of film you’d forgotten, and realizing it’s a lot older than you thought. Somehow, 36 pictures were enough for Malaysia, Mallorca, Vietnam and Cambodia. A few of these have instantly become some of my all-time favourites, and knowing my love for the mysterious and light play, it’s pretty obvious which ones I’m talking about.
I like blurry pictures. I like excessive contrast, not-quite-right exposure, weird angles. Digital cameras make it so easy to get the perfect picture nowadays I feel like I have to go the extra mile to get the odd picture, the one that makes you think, that evokes memories and isn’t “just perfect for a Facebook cover photo”.
What can I say? I’m a fan of imperfection. It’s another level of beauty, I suppose.
