First Prints

Perhaps this is my project biting its own tail, and perhaps it’s cheating since I didn’t go out to shoot, but I’m excited to have just gotten my first batch of prints back.

One of the rules of this project is that I’m not only shooting every day, and posting here and on Facebook almost every day, but I’m also regularly printing the pictures I post. A good photo printer is beyond my budget these days, so I’m very pleased to see the quality I got from Aldi, of all places. For a couple Euros, I now have a handful of sharp, shiny, colour accurate prints.

We see most photographs on screens these days, but there’s something very satisfying about holding a picture in your hand, hanging it on your wall, and really spending some time with it, and not just swiping to the next one.
