Today, I went on a little adventure around West Philadelphia with two vintage cameras and I have nothing to show for it. Well not until the film is developed, anyhow. So, in the meantime, I figured that I'd snap a couple shots of the cameras themselves and tell you why I'm so giddy.
I'm not sure if it's cool or if it's cliché to be walking around with vintage cameras strapped around your neck. But for me, it felt like a connection into my family's past. One camera that's been passed down from my great-grandfather. The other, a reminder of my mom--her days in art school, her days snapping childhood photos of my brother and I--a reminder that she was once younger than I am now; time keeps ticking.
So, though I've wanted to do it for a while, today I was finally brave enough to venture out into the world with both cameras and I'm anxious to see the results.
O the days of waiting for your film to be developed. They're back again...
