But I also managed to take 2 1/2 rolls of film (which isn't bad considering how much time I spent with my digital and how much time we spent just lounging about inside and doing nothing particularly photo-worthy). One roll was with my trusty Pentax K1000 and the other with my still experimental Canonet 28. The other half roll is still waiting to be finished in my Olympus Pen F.
The beautiful thing was that as soon as I finished those rolls and got them developed I couldn't wait to see them! And when I did, I spent so much time just looking through them again and again deciding how to post and organize them for my blog... I just couldn't wait to share them! And there my friends... was my renewed love with film. That is why I love those cameras and why I will never abandon them. My digital is wonderful and it serves a very practical purpose (which is also great!)... but my film cameras are completely impracticable and fantastic because of that! The pictures are special, carefully calculated... there is so much more invested in each shot and yet the results are always a surprise!
So for now, since I still can't decide how to organize my next post... I will give you my absolute favourite shot of the whole trip (film & digital alike)... taken with my Pentax K1000 and expired Polaroid 200 film.
