sprocket rocket

Years ago, my uncle Gus gave me a very cool plastic 35 mm camera. It's so fun to throw in my purse and take as many photos as possible with. When  I get the roll of film back, I can compose even more images, just in the way I cut or scan the film. It's also really good for me to let go of perfection. With the 4x5 I am making sure everything is spot on and perfect before using a sheet of film. I almost always know what I will get back when the film is developed and if there are surprises- rarely are they welcomed. With the 35 mm film from the sprocket rocket, I love the surprises and the overlapping of bodies, skies, and periods within my memory. I welcome the nuances, grain, and horrible sun-flare with open arms. Here are a few of my personal faves.
