I like to revisit shooting film every now and then, and I just got some long-forgotten rolls back from the developer. These were taken with a 35 mm Nikkormat EL, which was actually my old man's originally. I liberated it from him though. 

With a hard metal body and a heavy lens, it's an absolute workhorse of a camera that still takes gorgeous images decades after it rolled off the assembly line. 

Most legit photographers probably wouldn't post these images. They're far from perfect. Overexposed, out of focus and tilted too. But that's where shooting film differs from digital for me. I enjoy, and am proud of, these moments as they were caught, even if that means they're a bit awkward. That's something I don't feel with digital. 

In the meantime, I'm resharpening my film game and committing myself to shoot more.
