Snow Squares

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

I found an old camera laying around the office last week and thought I would have some fun with it. I didn't have any film on me at the time so as I went out on my assignments over the next few days, I took photos through that old camera with the Nikon camera's I normally use every day. I like the square format that is a result of shooting through the old camera's viewfinder and the scratches along the edges. I hope to run some film through it in the coming weeks to see how they come out!

Wonder feeling of yesteryear. This nostalgic imagery is such a refreshing break from the crisp, perfect digital everything we're immersed in every day. Nice work!
