Tropical Memories

For about 5 years now, I would get excited about film for a little bit and shoot a roll or two, but because of where we lived I never had any good options for developing that film and so it would go into a bag in my refrigerator. I would then shoot digital again and kinda forget about it. I ended up collecting about 20 rolls of un-processed film. I know this is kinda silly but I am actually kind of glad I did this.

Now that I have a local lab that does a great job for an affordable price, and I am able to shoot film regularly, I am bringing these old rolls in one at a time with my new rolls to get developed and scanned. I have to tell you, it is so much fun re-discovering these old photographs. I get to relive parts of our history that I had completely forgotten about. I honestly had forgotten about almost everything that happened on this roll until I saw these pictures again and I love that. Because I captured these moments I can relive them and experience these moments and the emotions all over again. These pictures are from 2012 I think and were taken in and around our home in Daytona Beach Florida at the time. 

On a technical note, this is the first roll of Porta 800 I have developed. I really love how colorful and contrasty it is. There is also a lot of grain but I don't mind at all here. It fits the look of the pictures.
