First shot.
First roll.
Film first-hand: I found joy in the anticipation — in waiting for the roll to be developed, the negatives to be scanned. I found magic in seeing photographs, which were taken days, weeks, months ago, for the very first time.

These are some of the shots from my first ever film roll that was shot using Yashica FX-3 and an expired Kodak Ultramax 400 film. Timeline of photographs: May 2015-June 2015. Developed around August 2015. I have 5+ rolls of film yet to be developed. All were taken during the first half of 2016. We’re on the last month of 2017’s first quarter. Whether through words, film, smartphone, or a digital camera, I hope to chronicle more of the little, magical, and delightful along with the sad, harsh, and bleak.
