English Film My Pen

rewind the film

If you know anyone who loves to take photos the old school way, they’ll tell you how cool it is to use an expired film once in a while – the colours get all funky and you’ll end up with strong greens or oranges, no filters needed.

What about a film that was perfectly fine at the time it was used, but was left in a drawer, waiting for more than 20 years to be developed?

These were taken in Madeira, not by me but by my mother while on a business trip. She passed away a few years later and I was suddenly able to see brand new images through my mom’s eyes two decades later.

Priceless findings like these are one of the reasons why I love analogue – as much as digital makes our lives easier, history feels a lot more real when it can be touched.
