Jess and I had this idea to walk around with a disposable camera for a week-ish to capture life around us the "old fashion" way--flim, well a disposable camera to be more exact. Well let me tell you it was WAY harder than I thought it was going to be... let me explain
1. I only had 27 shots, I take 27 shots in a minute and a half with my DSLR.
2. I had to remember the dang thing. In an age where I ALWAYS have a camera at the tap of my finger it was hard to remember. Jess even joked about having to tie hers around her neck!
3. It KILLED me that I couldn't see the shot right after it was taken, the little yellow box was holding it captive and I was NOT ok with it. Especially if the flash did or didn't go off.
4. When I got them developed I was in love with the imperfections of some, but hated the imperfections of others. It was a mixed bag.
Now on to the pictures
(I will have to confess I had some scanning issues and should have just paid the guy the extra $2 to put them on a disk for me. Then I remembered that this is my--and jess' link up and I can do what I want to... so you get a picture of a picture, but personally I like the juxtaposition of the old and new)

I wish this picture would have turned out better, but the more I look at it the more I love the imperfection. I have three girls that wait in my door way at the end of the day waiting for their "boyfriends" to walk by-- just to get that one last hug of the day. Somedays I yell, somedays I think it is sweet :)
"Listen to me play trumpet"-- The LAST thing a middle school teacher wants to hear... trust me.
and these... these are my favorite part of "real" pictures. Holding a negative up to the light and watching an image apear will always be something I love.
What did you capture?!
