Camera: Kodak Brownie Starmite I
Film: Rollei Retro 80S 127 film
I think I’m in love ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
These pictures were made with a camera pretty enough to be photographed itself. Wich is one of the reasons why I bought it at a Fleamarket in Sweden last summer.
After searching the world wide web I finally found a shop that had one 127film left. I bought it. And then never dared to use it, since it was my only one. ‘Oh no, what if I screw up this one film I have!’ thoughts kept running through my mind.
But then my trip to Vlieland came. And I started packing my bag as one does before a trip. One of the things I always do before a trip is look at my collection of old cameras and think which ones to bring. So I did the same for Vlieland. I stared at my camera collection. And my beautiful Kodak Brownie stared back at me. I got that precious little 127 film out of my film collection. It was going to happen. I was going to use this camera and this filmroll.
Which now appears to have been a wonderful idea, since I am absolutely smitten with these photos ❤
The grain, the contrast, the sharpness (in some, but unfortunately not all. damn my shaky hands!), the little cameo of the boyfriends finger in that last one, the atmoshpere. I just love the way they turned out ❤
Now to browse the internet in search for more 127 film. Wish me luck!
