My dad gave me a Pentax K1000 film camera for my birthday back in early April, and I’ve been taking photos with it ever since. Today I drove up to Worcester to pick up my first roll of film, which I dropped off a couple of weeks ago.
I was so excited to see them, and I’m happy with a lot of them, but I realize that what’s missing in these photos is humans. I love taking photos of people and I didn’t really see many people last month. Now that most of my friends are also fully vaccinated, I’m excited to be able to take my camera out when we see each other. One of my favorite things about photography is sharing the photos with the people who are in them, so I look forward to that as I finish shooting my next roll.
Despite my slight-disappointment with these (I’m also just not totally in love with anything I took), I wanted to share some of my favorites here with you. It is my first roll of film, after all, so I should be happy they actually came out!
I hope you enjoy.
