Developed the film from my rad soccer mom-like Pentax point and shoot camera - a trip exposed from when I grabbed a friend and ran off out West to visit the boy in LA. I love putting in a fresh 24 count roll and snapping the first crisp shot. I love the vulnerable aspect as you capture with an unknown grasp of the turnout. I love the sound of unwinding film. I love waiting a couple weeks before developing. I love watching the memories reveal. I love crossing my fingers hoping my smile isn't as dorky as normal or my left eye isn't squinting, meshing with closure. I love looking at the days we spent exploring the unknown. I wore your clothes, underdressed, oversized, and beautiful. I love the indecisiveness of each day. I love chasing waterfalls. I love the walks we took to the invisible house as the sun started setting. I love the noisy nights turning into peaceful mornings. I love the sugary pancakes. I love the smokey sound of your voice that night at your show. I love how hard we laughed afterwards in the studio.
I love this dog. I love this friend. I love this boy. I love California. Take me back.
