On Sunday I had 8 rolls of 24 exposure film developed…that is 192 new photographs in my life.
The level of joy I had looking at all of these for the first time was much like my first time on a roller coaster.
These are just a small sample of the magic I discovered:
In July I went to visit my sister in New York City…I spent most of my days reading and lounging in Bryant Park (because it was too hot and sticky to walk around).
The beginnings of my succulent garden.
After looking at my pictures I realized that I have an unhealthy obsession with Palm Trees…a small percentage of the prints were of Palm Trees…I regret nothing.
Southern California Winter.
I went to beach and was harassed by sassy sea gulls.
My palm tree obsession comes through in my Supersampler prints.
I worked an event at the beach this last Saturday and after it was all over the sun finally decided to come through the clouds and rain.
I developed a roll of film from 2000 and I had no idea what was on it, this picture (and two others just like it) were my absolute favorite pictures of the 192 I had developed because this is my late Oliver (aka my first love). He passed in 2009 and I was totally not expecting to find him.
