The death of film

I finally got my camera developed the other day, the last time I went up to the photo counter at boots I must of been about 13 years old. Christ I did not realise how much it cost,£12. But it got me thinking whatever the cost I will always love cameras that use film. I like the surprise off what the pictures look like, the colours and light. And I have a guilty fetish for the photos that went a bit wrong. You know the ones where people have their eyes closed or they are about to sneeze. But recently when I was having a bonding session with my auntie we came across loads of old photos, of her as a child and a scary amount of photos of me as a child crying, apparently my uncle found it hilarious taking photos of of his niece and nephew in fit of tears. I realised that if I use a digital camera I will never print these funny chapters of my life off, they will forever be lost in cyberspace, I will never be able to show my children me in my adolescent years, badly dressed, at my slimmest and at the funnest time of my life. I will now in future print off my photos or waste the rest of my money on using film. Film is cooler lets face it. It even makes a grey day seem like a warm summers evening. digital is the future but is boring and predictable

I am suddenly in the need to go out and buy purple seeing this photo (above) and reading this weeks Grazia had led me to the conclusion that purple is the colour of the summer.
