[ October 2010 – University Club – Palo Alto, California – FILM ]

Ali and I attended a cousin’s wedding in October 2010 in Palo Alto, California. I used an uncle’s film camera and shot just one roll. I like the way these uncorrected images turned out. I don’t remember what kind of film I used; the color is definitely off but the photos convey the exact mood of the elaborate spread and the boisterous family celebration. Persian weddings are my favorite!

The Sofreye Aghd Wedding Spread (sohfreh/sofreh) is a collection of symbolic and beautiful elements spread before the couple. I love the ancient traditions brought forward in today’s Iranian wedding ceremonies; you can tell from these photos that I spent most of my roll of film on the photogenic table spread!

Boston tall ships film

I am going through some film photos from 2009 and came across a few frames from the tall ships festival in Boston. The black and white image was from 120 film through a Holga camera. The color images are 135 film in a lomo fisheye toy camera.
