A long weekend down south

Time has a habit of slipping by quietly, and if you aren’t hyper-vigilant, weeks, months, or years can pass between seeing old friends. This year I wanted to get better at that, and make sure I carved out opportunities where possible. Visiting my old teenage festival pals down south was especially important, as it had somehow ended up three years since we last hung out in person. I hopped on a train and spent a long weekend with them and their kids – soaking up the sun, drinking kegs of cider, and talking about where our 20s disappeared to. All the pictures below were shot on film, with either a Rollei 35s, or a Rolleiflex 2.8E. My head is still burned.

  1. Some lovely portraits, in an informal way. I don’t know these people, but from those photographs I feel like they’re no longer strangers. If that makes any sense. I really like the generally look and colours too. Timeless.

    1. Thanks Dan. I used to shoot film all the time, but fell out with it for ages. I think I’ll need to go back to shooting it more often….

      1. Ditto. Not that I necessarily fell out of love with it, I just found the reasons I was making photographs with film cameras could be satisfied to a large extent with digital. And the ongoing cost became a prohibitive factor for me with film.

      2. Yeah. Similar here, though I’ve recently found film giving me something that digital doesn’t seem to manage. Will see how it shakes out over the next few months!
