Opening a Film Time Capsule

Back in the day, sick I used a film camera. I thought about that old friend today. While updating picture frames in my oldest daughter’s room, store we came across a Film Time Capsule. Underneath the existing photo was a handful of photographic treasures I had left behind.

All straight out of that trusted Canon camera with No Photoshop or Cropping. Here are the scans.

I forgot she was ever this age. That sweet tender face playing in bubbles, baking with my mom, raking leaves and playing at the beach seems so long ago.

She was 4 years old and soon after these photos her baby brother, swiftly followed by her baby sister came along. Being overwhelmed, the fancy film camera went into hibernation.

Although, I do remember how I took photos with film. I was slower, savoring each exposure on that 36 roll of film. Oh, and the excitement of picking up a developed roll to see what you captured. Did I get those settings right? Those were the days.

I can’t believe early motherhood made me put down my fancy camera. Wait, yes I can. Anyways, I hope you have a Film Time Capsule tucked away to cherish someday too.

If you are asking how did I get my photographic groove on, years later in 2010? With a new Digital Canon Camera to boot?  It wasn’t easy. You can read about that over here at Project 365 Mission Accomplished, That is, if you have the time.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. These are FABULOUS photos! I have an old Nikon from the 70’s that was my father in law’s… and he took BEAUTIFUL pictures with it. I just need to get the balls to start using it.
