Photo break

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today I decided to take a break from taking photos, but I did get a bit of inspiration this evening and scanned some of my old slides.

These photos were taken with either my Minolta X-100 or my Minolta α507si on Fujifilm Velvia or Sensia (I edited the scans in Lightroom). When I lived in Japan, I loved roaming the city snapping photos. I can only imagine how many photos I would have taken if good digital cameras existed back then!

Shooting film was really great though. I enjoyed it a lot. Loading the film, taking the time to make more deliberate photos, and the anticipation when the film is at the lab was all part of the fun. I doubt I will go back to film, but I’m glad I had the experience.
