'Photography takes an instant out of time,altering life by holding it still.' -Dorothea Lange

I have a secret love affair with film. There is a depth, a texture, a visual satisfaction I can't quite explain. Months ago, I dug out my dad's F5. I was determined & excited to use it. Then I realized why it sat around for months. It's not instant. A couple weeks ago, though, I finally loaded it up & put my first roll through. It was a pleasant reunion. Kodak Portra 400.

Today she is 4 months old. She's such a sweetheart. She laughs, she smiles, she rolls, she's pushing her head up high & trying to get on her knees. I wish I could slow her down, just a little bit. I wish a lot of things for her. When I came across this quote tonight, it summed a lot of those up quite well. Happy 4 months to our Ella-Bella Gracie-Girl~
