Olympus OM1n with Kodak Portra 400 - 2016

It's no secret that I absolutely love fresh flowers. Ask my husband after I've walked out of the store in the middle of January while he's been waiting in the car and I'm carrying a bundle of tulips and pussy willow. In this past year, that has been the one thing that I've discovered about Long Island that I absolutely love- the flowers. There is such an abundance of beautiful flowers that I can't even begin to name all of them.

There have been everything from Dahlias to Peonies to Sunflowers and many many more. What's better than my love for flowers? Taking pictures of flowers with film. Throughout the spring and summer of 2016, I chronicled my ever growing obsession with fresh flowers by taking as many snapshots as possible with a huge variety of film. I used everything from Kodak Portra 400 to expired Kodak E100s.

It marked the first time I ever saw a field of sunflowers in bloom.

Also, the first time I ever experienced the beauty of farmstand bouquets.

I can't wait for spring to arrive again. I don't think there is anything really as beautiful as a fresh flower in bloom, except maybe my daughter holding said flowers since I think my obsession with florals rubbed off on her ;) or maybe it's in the blood?

Until next time, stay wild and beautiful my friends :)
