*In Japanese 青 (ao) can mean both blue and green.
Its funny because I vaguely remember writing a month or so ago that I would not be using my film camera for more than one roll a week, because of the expense, and now I use it almost exclusively. I just haven’t been interested in my digital camera much lately. Although it captures an image that most closely resembles the reality I saw, I think the film camera is better at capturing the feeling of the moment – and I guess I also prefer the stylized, highly saturated appearance that I get without having to edit at all.
If you’ve been following this blog since I started it last July I think you’ll have probably noticed how much my photos have changed. I began it as something for people at home to keep up with my experience and it has since turned into a hobby that I’m pretty dedicated to. Because it costs me around $10 to develop each roll of film and have it scanned onto a cd I’ve cut my spending on other things (i.e. clothing) dramatically. The anticipation of seeing how my film will turn out is addictive!
I really appreciate the comments, emails, and encouragement. I never imagined I would have several hundred people looking at this everyday! I’m thinking about making a website to accompany this and as per a few suggestions, maybe a photo book? If you have any ideas on this I’d love to hear them!
