About three years ago, I was skyping with my sister while she was on ebay, bidding for a camera for me. Bidding itself was exciting and I was glad I ended up getting my analogue Nikon camera for what I thought was a pretty fair price.
I took pictures with it every now and then, but I wasn’t too sure what I was doing and I got scared I’d mess everything up, so I soon just decided to leave my camera at home. I had one or two film rolls that I filled with shots, but I was too afraid to get them developed in case they all turned out bad.
Recently, I decided I’d pick it back up again. I felt like I knew a bit better how cameras worked and I was excited to give it another go.
I took some pictures of friends that were visiting me – all of them friends that live far away and that I barely ever get to see.
I wanted to take pictures that were really special, in case they did turn out alright.
About a month ago, I finally finished shooting all twenty-four photos. I was nervous, but also very excited to get this roll developed, as it was filled with so many good memories. I chose the two-day development rather than the one-hour one just to save money, but I soon regretted my decision as I just couldn’t wait.
After two long days I went to go get the results. And I am so glad to say that I was very happy with how they turned out. Here are some of them that I would like to share with you.
