The Year of the Bug: Camera Porn, Again

On one hand, I love this project. I'm always thinking of new themes, and can't wait for the next week to begin.

On the other, I've always found the passage of time slightly depressing, and have mastered having no idea how long it has been, and feeling like time flies. Counting the weeks is having an adverse affect on me. The only good part of the downside is that right now, I'm counting the weeks till baseball season.

This week, I shot yesterday and today with my grandpa's old Nikon film camera. The camera currently has a 35mm lens on it which makes for very wide pictures. Stupidly I shot in very narrow spaces which made for lots of ugly stuff on either side of Mac. So I did something I've never done before- I edited a film shot. All I did was crop it down to square, but it still somehow feels wrong to manipulate film. The purist in me shrieks at this shot. The photographer in me also shrieks at the crappy processing, but that's what you get when you take the film to CVS and pay for crappy drug store 1 hour processing...

If Mac can take a picture, FOR SURE he can open a bottle of champagne
