december disposables

Getting a disposable camera is something I’ve wanted to do for so long but never got around to it. I happened to be on a little trip to NYC this December with Sofie when I decided to finally stop into a corner drugstore and buy one. The photos I got are mostly from that week but some are random shots from the weeks following. Although they took about 4 weeks to get developed, I think it was worth the wait. To me, no digital photo will ever compare to film photos. Sure, they came out a little grainy and the lighting isn’t right in many of them, but I think that’s the magic of a disposable camera– the lack of control over how the images are going to come out. There’s kind of a beauty in having only one shot at it, whether it turns out exactly how you pictured or not doesn’t really matter because at least you captured the moment. I believe that these photos have more originality, emotion, and energy than any photo I could have gotten on my phone, so that’s why I’m so thankful to have them to keep and share.

Here’s a little look at my life when I’ve only got one shot.

I’m excited to get another disposable and get some more shots of my life like these ones. Hopefully you enjoyed scrolling through them, I sure enjoyed living them.
