Time capsule

In Film

I’m not a consistent film shooter. Instant film, yes. Pretty much every week, I’m out with my Instax Mini90 or my Polaroid SX-70. When I see work others have shot on film, I fall in love with the look. But somehow, after I succumb to the siren song and load a new roll into my camera, I become a bit lazy. Other cameras take priority, and the film languishes in the camera.

A few weeks ago I finally mailed off two rolls of film for developing, one shot with my Holga and the other with my Rolleiflex TLR. Seeing the images that came back was a little like looking into a time capsule.

Different locations, different seasons…proof of my delay in shooting and developing this film. But in a way, strangely satisfying to look at these images and remember the places I’ve been and the camera I carried.

It’s also interesting to compare the images from two very different cameras. While I enjoy the quirkiness of the Holga, I think the Rolleiflex needs more of my attention! Off to order more film…
