On November 15th, 2011, I arrived in Brooklyn, New York and opened up the door to my new apartment for the first time. In a bittersweet 30 minutes, my dad and I unpacked my possessions from the van we had just driven for 10 days across the country. We left San Diego on November 3rd, made stops in Tucson, El Paso, Austin, New Orleans, Memphis, & DC and we had a blast everywhere in between. During the trip I took almost 30 rolls of film with my shitty Minolta XG7 and some cheap Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 color film. Finally, I got around to developing the film and I just uploaded all the photos to flickr. I still need to sort and title and tag them all so I’ll be posting only one or two rolls every week instead of publishing them all at once.

Eventually each roll of film will be published in a collection on flickr.
My dad and I did a lot of mobile uploads to facebook and instagram and I checked in everywhere on 4square, so it was very refreshing to just snap some film photos and not fuss with uploading/deleting/saving/sharing etc. This trip was amazing and it was a seriously fun exercise to use my film camera.
