Ok guys. This is the first photograph from the "Freedom In Black And White" series I made with ~FeA-OLoReA. I'm about to upload the whole series to soon.

Remember, I'm completely new to film photography. I used a black and white film (400 ISO) with my Nikon FM2. We spent about two hours and a half on that desert and cold shore that day... Cheeks became red and hands frozen, but memories still lie beneath our hearts. Despite this, we had a terrific time. We were completely free to jump to the sky and to trace hopes in the sand, to dance until there was no strength left in our bodies, until our souls were fulfilled. Sea and us promised to meet again, one day.

And yes, there is grain, there are stains, it's not sharp, it is highly imperfect on many levels; it is over-exposed, and it is too dark. But... it was a perfect moment.
That's why I didn't want to edit this at all, it's raw, just as it is on the original print. One second of a beautiful winter afternoon.

I'm not sure there is much to say about this, everything has been said on that shore, between Her, her and me. And the silence was imposing. And I don't want to stay here. And I want to go back there. And I already miss Wind biting my naked skin...

:pointr: what do you mean?

Yes I like the FM2, too, even though it's heavy, thus it's not always handy. But it sure does pretty pictures! :)

Thanks for the comment & fav ^^
