The Old Way

Lately, I have a little lack of motivation. So I had to try something new/old. After a long time I took in hands my old camera, which I received as a gift a few years ago, the Fujica ST705w and the classic Kodak bw400cn (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures). What a feeling when you smell a film and load it in the camera. Since you have only 36 shots, you’re thinking a little differently when and how you will press the shutter release button.

And then you waiting … you do not know what you’ve done, or the image is in focus, or the lighting is right. And finally you get a developed negative film… what a joy. I still remember how it used to be when you developed a negative film after traveling and then that waiting. Yes I’m old almost like my Fujica.

  1. Lovely photos! And I’m sure the thinking is different when you know you only have 36 shots….I think I might challenge myself to that with my regular camera; a little more mindful photography.

  2. Theses are wonderful, especially knowing they are done on film. I loved, no cherished, my Nikon 8008. It sits in my closet. The bicycle mirror shot is fantastic. What a joy to get those photos back, you must have felt thrilled. Your talent is definitely in black and white. Bravo.
