Below are the photos I took with my dad’s old Nikon SLR with my lovely friends Genevieve and Catherine. I really love playing with film. I’ve shot four rolls so far, and it’s probably time for me to start being more adventurous.

When Geneveive visited on Wednesday (see the digital portraits I took of her here) we went to lunch at a nearby Vietnamese restaurant. She loves pho and talked me into giving it a second try. I’d only had beef pho and really disliked it, but this seafood pho was delicious! I’ve been craving it since that day!

Genevieve is a talented photographer and took wonderful photos of me and Joseph. I love them! You can see those at Genevieve’s blog.

In January I met up with my friend Catherine of See Creatures. I finished one roll of film in that time and began another, which is why it took me so long to post these here. I waited six months to get the second to last photo!

We went out for lunch at a Thai restaurant, and I got to meet her adorable Japanese Chin, Bunny.


  1. LOOOOOOOVE your film photo’s! That seafood pho seriously looks so delicious, my tummy is rumbling, ugh! I need to find a good Vietnamese restaurant near me. I have really enjoyed all these photos!

  2. I love the photos that you and Genevieve took together recently – so beautiful! I especially love your film photos, the grain and saturation just can’t be replicated with film. And now I’m hungry for andaman again, haha.

  3. I LOVE these film photos! Do you know which type of film you used for these rolls? It’s so fun to see Genevieve and Catherine on your blog!

      You know what? It’s actually just Walgreens film! ISO 400. My camera is currently empty, though, because I wanted to try a different film!

  4. I love your whole blog, the layout, the content. Your friend Genevieve is naturally a good poser but you the photographer really made the shots. Hats off to you, well done
