Pennies from heaven

As you may or may not know we love skating. Well penny boarding in correct terms. We may not be the next Tony Hawk but we do love it, a lot. That being said we haven’t exactly had the best experiences with our boards. We both had the a clear plastic board. Sadly they both snapped. I mean what are the chances, of not just one but both snapping? It didn’t stop us though. We were recently given two new boards.

We can’t wait to start our adventures with our new boards.

Fond memories

Gathering from our other posts it is rather obvious that we are quite obsessed with taking Film photographs. I think it is the way in which you never know what you are going to get until the day you fetch your film. It creates that extra bit of spice in one’s life. It also, in my opinion, makes one less prone to perfection. When I take photo’s on my digital camera I sift through them and always end up with only one I truly like. Whereas with film each picture is worth so much more.

I remember when I first starting using my film camera. I would try to compose the perfect picture. I’d always tell my subject (If I were taking a picture of a person) to move until I felt it was the perfect picture. But boy have things changed. Now I snap photos spontaneously and whenever I want. This makes that collection day all the more exciting.

The pictures in this post are sort of misfits because they come from about three different film rolls. They also span across about 5 months.
