As you may have already noticed, I am obsessed with taking pictures on my little point and shoot film camera. It’s probably one of my new favourite things to do, I love collecting memories in little snapshots and looking back at them. The joy and nervousness that consumes me whilst waiting to get my film developed have become a sort of addiction. But most of all, I enjoy sharing those snapshots with all of you, sharing some of my favourite memories and having something too look back at.
This summer hasn’t gone to plan for many of us, and honestly, it’s hindered my mental wellbeing quite a bit, but I think it has also forced me to find joy in other things. It’s taught me that life is uncertain and that we should make the most out of what we have.
Bringing both my love for film photography and a need to seek joy in new things/places, I thought I would show you some of my most loved film snaps from this summer. These images summarise how blessed I feel to be surrounded by such loving, caring and nurturing people.
I have been to Cambridge a few times but this was my very first time punting and other than nearly toppling over trying to get into the Punt, I really enjoyed myself. Sadly, I don’t have the upper-body strength to even attempt to push the punt!
Every year we have a family trip to the temple for the Chariot Festival, it’s not only religiously enlightening but I love that it brings my whole family together. Sadly, this year because of coronavirus it wasn’t the same but much like everything, we have to make the best out of a difficult situation.
FLOWER FIELD LOVE! Other than nearly melting in the heatwave, this was definitely one of my favourite days out this summer but else would you expect from this flower child.
And finally, this summer, after years of searching for a place to see these. beauties, I finally got to. run through a field of sunflowers!!!! From the massive ass grin on my face, you can see that I was one very happy bunny 🙂
They are a collection of my favourite memories from this summer, which outweigh all the struggles and uneasiness I have felt. They make me feel light, airy and happy! And, I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I have loved capturing these moments.
