yearbook one

I am an eBay savant. I am really good at eBay. Like, guys, I am extremely skilled at eBay. I am so highly skilled that I have accidentally become the owner of strange shirts on multiple occasions very late at night. What happens between me and an eBay storeowner between the hours of 3:00 am-5:00 am is between me and what I assume is a 70-year-old man selling me his clothes. 

eBay has gifted me some of my most prized possessions, including a Minolta SRT-202 film camera. Minnie and I have been together for about two and a half years now, and we couldn't be happier. Some of my best memories have been shared with and saved by Minnie. Recently, I spent the months of August, September, and a fraction of October in a lovely little town in Utah called Ogden. This is probably the first and last time you'll ever hear of Ogden as it is very small and typically outshone by its siblings Park City and Salt Lake City. I knew approximately zero people in Ogden except for the nine others that made the journey with me, and boy oh boy do birds of a feather flock together. There is nothing quite like being in a city with very little to do where you know zero people to make you instantly bond with those in the same situation. 

We managed to make the most of our time there and I'd like to think we would all definitively agree that our brief life in Utah was quite fun. Adventures were had, most of which I captured with Minnie. I got the pictures developed a few days ago and sent them off to our shared photo library, to which my friend affectionately labeled them, "a yearbook of our time in Utah." I loved that a lot. 

The great thing about film pictures is that they're a gamble. You never know if it's going to turn out awesome or turn out like crap, but that's sort of the fun in it. The moments captured on film tend to look realer than those captured digitally. Something about looking at a photo taken on film transports you back to the exact place and time that picture was taken. You don't just look at a film photo. You feel it. 

So this is our yearbook. I hope you guys can feel a little bit of it too.
