There has been a steady trend towards analog cameras and the classic point-and-shoot versions from the 70’s and 80’s. I am joining in on this trend by taking the unsustainable “Throw-away camera” Road, for now that is. I am still on the hunt for my analog camera but that is a story for another time, feel free to hit me with recommendations though! Last summer I really was really unhappy with digital photography and the need to capture the most perfect picture in a million attempts, this is definitely still a major issue. Which is why I decided to get offline and capture some moments without having the chance to actually see what I produced.
It is the most liberating feeling to not try and get the lighting just right or change your pose a hundred times before finding the right one. Plus it will give you the most nostalgic feeling ever, as it will throw you back to your childhood (at least that’s the case for anyone born in the (80’s/mid 90’s). The excitement of picking up the developed pictures from the store and going through them once you make it home, is of course similarly rewarding. So enjoy this little journey through my summer.

In case you were wondering: Yes, the thumbs in the pics are intentional and also Yes, I have an unhealthy obsession with France. But it is great to look back at those memories, reminisce about the times shared with friends and also discover pictures you had already forgotten about.
