While I was off in Colorado having my mind blown and life changed, I shot a few rolls of film. I planned to shoot a roll of landscapes, and double expose it with portraits of the new friends I made, but like all good plans involving a first timer who is also a complete idiot – I failed. I accidentally rewound the film all the way and was unable to double expose it. I also accidentally opened my camera in the middle of a roll and ended up with some of the most fantastic light leaks ever. A mistake I plan to repeat.
With deliberate and utter intention.
But I digress.
I love film – I’m mildly obsessed with it in fact – and if I had a constant stream of hyper disposable income I’d likely shoot a whole lot more of it. I like not having to edit. I like embracing the mistakes, the flaws, the imperfections, the inconsistent consistencies. And most of all, I love the honesty of film. The color. The grain. So without further ado – and prattling on by yours truly – here are a few frames from my time in Colorado.
Solely on film.
