Yesterday (for yet another English assignment) we were asked to bring in one object that means a lot to us. My very first thought was aimed directly at the countless number of photo albums we have laying on one of our shelves, collecting dust. I suppose the biggest issue these days is that we take photo's for granted. Photo albums are our memories, The pictures and captions that fill in the blanks of our minds. Every time I open one of the books I tell myself to stick to only ONE album, no more. An hour later I find myself looking through the third album smiling and pointing at every picture that passes by. There is always something magical about photo's, they show us why and how we have become the person we are today. But this wasn't the only thing that stood out to me while looking through. All my old photo's were taken with film camera's, not the digital one's that can be taken, looked at and deleted. No, it had pictures that were taken in the moment, without second chances.
I absolutely adore the colours and effects that this camera had on each photo. I love the fact that all the edges go slightly darker (as if they were photo shopped) and the colours look brighter! I tried using this camera once but immediately stopped after I saw all the blurry results - I probably wasn't born for film photography...
My mum would always have the habit of trying to make our photo albums look as unique and as special as possible. All her photo albums contain photo's which have been taken sideways, cut into two or have other pictures overlapping them. We're such a creative bunch....
I know this post was a little different from the usual, but I hope you still enjoyed it!
