disposable number three

This past winter, I had two disposable cameras that I played with; I froze one, colored the lens of another, scratched lenses, held matches up to them to warp them. (You can see some of the altered results here.) When I went to Canada, I took another camera with me. I had had it my possession for awhile, and I was eager to use it in areas I typically don't see.

Unfortunately, I forgot to use it most of the time (which is why there are only eight photos here). However, I am pleased with the results. The first photo is my favorite, but I also love how RED the sides turned out in the sixth photo (which was taken in Niagara Falls, Canada). Honestly, I would love to explore film more. The waiting for the results is dramatic and mysteriously romantic--sometimes, you remember what photos you took (the one below). Sometimes, you don't (the bicycle above). But there is always an electricity in your hands when you finally flip through the printed images, an excitement to hold them, see them, have them.

This photo reminds me of my dad; in fact, I took this in part because all of the shirts reminded me of him. He has/wears a lot of Hawaiian shirts, and the blue one in the middle of this photo, the one with the palm trees, is very similar to one he owns.

I don't know who or what got in the way of this photo, because I would have loved it even more if the object/person hadn't been present. That's the mystery of film, though; sometimes, you never know what you'll end up with on a roll.

  7. Did you alter this one too or just the other two?
    They turned out great! I love the Hawaiian shirts that remind you of your dad. It's odd the things that end up sticking with us the most.
