I love the mistakes that come with using film.

Often, I like the mistakes more than the shots that turn out. That’s part of why I started shooting film. For the surprises.

Whenever I pick up a roll at the lab, it’s like Christmas morning. Of course, it’s sometimes a sad Christmas, like the year when I found two sweatshirts in the box that I was sure contained a Cocker Spaniel puppy. But I’m learning to take what I can get.

My friend Gemma has the most beautiful hands. I will never have hands like that.

And while we’re on the topic of beauty, two words: bacon and sandwich.

I hope your week is off to a very good start, friends.
