There's nothing I love more than gritty, old fashioned semi-out of focus film photographs. Okay, maybe a few things, but not much. Spencer just recently hit up a local camera show in downtown Anaheim and snatched a pretty Welta 35mm baby from the 1940's. Unsure if it even worked or if the expired film from Walmart he rolled would even come out, we took our chances.
I'm so glad that we did.
The whole reason I got into photography was because of film. Fifteen years old basically closed my eyes and chose an elective. Best choice I ever made. It makes me sad that many schools these days don't have it as a choice. I'd love to have my own dark room, hold on while I dream.
The more I see Spencer play around with all these different cameras makes me want to get back into it more... and it makes me love him more, actually. He never ceases to amaze me. Who knew two photographers would work so well together. but that's for another blog post... ;)
This post is also featuring my dear internet friend's new clothing brand Three Leaves Co. I've known Annmarie for years. She's followed my silly mixed up life and I've followed her sweet adorable one. (It's true.) It's also quite unreal the connection you can make with people without ever meeting face to face. We will meet some day soon though, I swear on it. Some of my closest friends I've met that way. She is the sweetest soul.
I'm stoked for her and her new brand and I gotta say, this tank is probably the softest one I now own. Jackpot. Go check out her shop and follow her on the Instagrams: @threeleavesco
