35mm Water Lilies

The first photography I ever did was a high school summer session using black and white film. Over 10 years later, and I haven't touched the stuff since. I thought it'd be fun to challenge myself to not only use film, but also try black and white. The results were better than expected.

These two photos of waterlilies from a lake weekend over the summer fully capture what I love about photography. It's dreamy, yet tangible, nostalgic, yet real.
