    Mystery Film Roll

    New-to-me experience: finding a used-up roll of film and not having a clue of what was on it. Rodrigo and I threw ideas back and forth on what the photos could possibly be. We were both wrong. Dating back all the way to the Autumn of 2014 through New Year’s Day 2015, I was surprised by all the wonderful portraits I took of my friends. This one has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while and I didn’t even know it.

    Snippets from 2015

    Sad but true: this one roll of black and white film spans from February through October 2015. One of my goals this past trip in Peru was to take a lot of photos on film.

I’m really hesitant to take pictures when it’s on film because it’s so expensive to buy film and develop. Every picture counts. So of course, when I got all my pictures developed, I realized how little I had taken while I was there. Oops. Granted, I took a lot more pictures on my phone, but…

    Sweater Beats at the Festival of Colors

    I just realized that I’ve been hoarding a lot of my photos recently. I’m about to get another roll of film developed, but I haven’t put up any pictures online. Here’s a few photos from the Holi Fest from several months ago. The Holi Festival is a Hindu festival held to celebrate the coming of spring. Also known as the Festival of Colors, the celebration of Holi usually involves participants coloring each other with colored powder. Holi is primarily observed in countries such as India and Nepal, but the celebration has spread to other countries as well, including the United States. This past year, I was invited to attend the…
