Film photography truly requires your patience. Also, even though we both shoot with our analog cameras, it seems to take us forever to go through our entire films. So much so that spring is behind us and I’ve just received films, all dating back to spring. Not that I’m complaining, shooting film is such a joy that even its downsides don’t feel like such in the end.

Seeing some of these photos makes me so happy because I’m seeing them for the first time. I’m seeing new moments of old memories. We don’t always capture everything on both digital and analog so every now and then, this happens. What is it that makes analog photography feel more special, different?

We always get so giddy when we pick up our scans and can’t wait to check them out at home. At the moment of writing this, I was at a coffee shop looking at photos of thumbnails of our scans.

From Japanese gardens, German castles to Antwerp museums and bluebell forests, I am stupidly grateful for all the memories we get to create together.

I can’t tell you how many times I stop to think how lucky I am. It’s kind of ridiculous. All those places I read about once or twice but never thought I would actually see them. I never fail to forget that nor do I ever take it for granted.

Life is so unexpected. Next month is going to mark my third year in Belgium, a country I initially moved to for a 10-month stay. Crazy, unexpected life indeed.
