Slide film gives more vibrant colour than print film. So, if you ever wondering why people shoot with slide film to make prints from, that’s why. Though I suppose with everything being digital now, that information and practice is being lost.

Snapshot

my mother, circa 1955

My grandmother took this snapshot of my mother around 1955. The original slide has faded, and I have no intentions on correcting the toll that time has taken. What interests me about the image is that, unlike many of my grandmothers photographs which are somewhat posed to tell a story, this image was likely just a study in composition using the resources available to her at the time.
