So my film took the trip from Fromex in Long Beach all the way back to my happy little hands this last week 🙂 I anxiously awaited its arrival and when it finally came I could hardly wait to tear open the package, it took all of me to not demolish the packaging before I took a picture.
Fromex offers a variety of services and thankfully they offered film developing. The process was ridiculously simple, I printed out a form to tell them what I wanted, then printed out the packing slip (Fromex so kindly paid the shipping to them), threw my film in the package and mailed it off.
When they got my film they called me immediately because I didn’t fill out the form to the fullest and I was a bit confused as to what my film actually needed (keep in mind my film was easily 5+ years old) the girl who called was super helpful explaining to me exactly what they could do for me. Once we got all of that settled I just had to wait for my film to come back.
So one roll came back with images on it and to my surprise those images were easily from 2004-2005; 7 years old, way older than I had initially thought that they were, I was actually a little bit amazed that it was they were that old. The images were nothing as exciting as I had hoped for but it was a nice blast from the past.
The second roll sadly was blank, I actually had higher hopes for that roll because it was a roll of black and white and I really have a deep love for black and whites photos. There is something classic and simple about black and white photos and I think that a lot of people just don’t understand or appreciate it.
I really wanted to keep this entry short and sweet and let you all know how mailing my film in went, if you cannot find a place to do I say mail it to Fromex 🙂
Now for some images from the roll of film that was able to processed…
When I was living at home I had these little star string lights over my bedroom window, and apparently I took this picture in some attempt to be artsy
The thing that I loved about this film that I used is that it was grainy and kind of washed out, the pictures have an older feel; an almost midsummer day feel to all of the images regardless of where and when they were taken. This picture was taken up the street from my parent’s house where they were doing construction.
And last but not least is a picture of my ex beloved hamster Leland.. he was a fat, fat long haired teddy bear hamster that; he was the one that got away, or out I should say, and my mom made me get rid of him. I kind of forgot about him until I saw the pictures, so much for beloved…
til next time
