My Aunt Kitty was an incredible lady. I plan on writing more about her soon, but until then I will tell you this. I didn't know her well, but of everyone in my entire family, I think I am most like her. She had bad ass jobs, went on amazing adventures, and loved photography. Back in the 70's she shot film on a Canon A-1 SLR, and a few years ago it got it passed down to me.
It had been sitting in my closet since then. I had tried film before, and failed. Blank roll after blank roll. I gave up.
My trip to Big Sur, CA was coming up and I decided to give it another try with that A-1 and some Ektar film I had laying around.
So glad that I did. I am freaking out with excitement.
