For the Love of Film

I LOVE film. It is like chem lab meets art fair.  I find so much satisfaction in shooting a roll of Tri-X and then swishing chemicals in my kitchen. It always gives me a thrill to unload the  tank and see the negatives for the first time. This is the time when I usually start messing things up though....dust, scratches, cats who think negatives bat around well. :) No matter though, it is still fun and a great way for me to capture my everyday without feeling the need to post process. I love digital imagery so much, but it requires a different type of work. I must create after I create and that is sometimes laborious and well, not fun. Film gives me permission to just capture the moment and let the chips fall where they may.

So here are some of my favorite images from the last month that I developed with my kiddos. Thank you so much for stopping by and please continue on with out Film-Loving circle by stopping by the blog of The wonderful and sweet Jo Clark!

The most beautiful sight in the world....kids cleaning!
This was a full blown sick day...:( 
 Our farm looked like black birds were attacking!
My bed looks like this every. single.day...
 ...and the bean bag pic a little bigger. No, they will NEVER do that  again. I don't even remember taking the picture because I was yelling at her the whole time. We had thrown this bean bag out, but the kids had other ideas. Who needs the ladder?
