Sometimes I Take Pictures.

Photography is something that I have always been interested in but never wanted to exploit. I always just wanted to keep it a little hobby; something on the side that was pure and fun. I’ve tinkered with a few different digital cameras here and there but never ventured into the 35mm world so a few months back I asked my Dad if he would let me borrow his Nikon EM, a super light little guy with a solid 50mm 1:8 stock lens on it. It’s easy to sling over your shoulder and trek around with, it’s not like an anchor around your neck. I messed around with a few color rolls; one turned out okay, another I completely fucked up, and the other had a few gems on it but nothing to write home about. My mom bought me some black and white film for christmas so I figured I would give it a shot. I usually steer clear of black and white photography because of all its bullshit connotations of being automatically “artsy” but I tossed it in there and hit the streets this weekend. I’m pretty happy with the shots that came of it and maybe i’ll stick to black and white for a bit, who knows!
