Underdeveloped Film Appreciation

By Char Shields - March 22, 2019

It's been a while since I've posted a photography appreciation post. In fact, it's been a while since I've even picked a camera up. There's a part of me that misses it... but then there's the part of me that remembers what an expensive hobby it is.

However, recently I was looking through the thousands of photos on my laptop and came across some old photos I took on my film camera back when I first moved to Bristol in 2016.

At the time I hated these photos. I took them to a supermarket to get developed (which is something I don't usually do) and they appeared all washed out.

Looking back on these in present day, I've really come to appreciate these photos. They look so odd, yet so aesthetically pleasing.

Note: I did try and edit these when I first received the developed pictures. However, I want to share the unedited ones because there's so much beauty in them. Some of them are upside down because my computer wouldn't let me rotate them, which is fine because I wanted to leave them exactly how I found them.

I remember this day so clearly: mid-September, making the most of the last days of the Summer weather. This was the first time I had explored a lot of the city. Having no idea where I was going... I just walked.

Until the next time,
