“Because I know that time is always time
And place is always and only place
And what is actual is actual only for one time
And only for one place”
-T. S. Eliot
While I love the immediacy of digital images, there’s something special about getting rolls of film developed.
The first two photos were taken with my “new” vintage Seagull during my last trip to Hong Kong. I’m secretly excited about the oddities of this old Shanghainese camera, and currently working on a new roll!
The rest were taken around N.Y., D.C., and Shanghai on an old disposable camera and my Lomo Colorsplash.
You can imagine how disoriented I felt when I took my first peek at the negatives. I kept asking myself, “When did I see a horse in Shanghai? Or is that New York in August?”
P.S. I have a hair appointment first thing tomorrow morning, and I am so nervous! The last time I got a haircut in China, I came home nearly in tears (mostly exhausted from communication mishaps because I didn’t speak any Mandarin yet). Earlier today I successfully made an appointment on the phone, so we’ll see how things go tomorrow! I’ll post photos along with my Muffin Monday Mix. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
