And the road disappeared into the sky

As always there comes a moment when poetry and words utterly fail to describe the beauty of vastness itself. Thankfully I had a camera. These images are from a roadtrip that I took with my Fiance and my family to my cousin’s wedding. I have experimented with a new film, lomo colour negative 100 iso film. A moment with Grandpa. The man with the porcelin dog – the opposite of ominous and perfect for my dear cousin Michael. I really enjoy the colours that this film brings out, its quite a cool tone, almost like a cyan filter. The grain is another element that I like, it evokes memory. I think because, like memories, it is slightly distorted.
