I've always had an interest in photography, but it came and went until finally, two years ago, I began shooting and developing my own film. From that point on, there was no stopping me.

One of things that fascinates me the most is the recovery of lost images, either through collection of already developed negatives or slides, or through the actual developing of found, unprocessed film. I've managed to successfully develop film that dates back to the 1930s or 40s. I've viewed lost family photos, high school yearbook pictures, vacation snapshots, and a multitude of other images, from the mundane to the heartbreaking.

My blog, http://www.craftbangboom.com/ , details my experiments in photography and photography related art/craft. Come on by!

Please note that I also am on Etsy under a different user name, Yarnzombie. I have a shop where I sell hand dyed yarns and fibers, as I've had a similar journey with that world as well as the photography world. That shop is at http://gaslightdyeworks.com , or just search Etsy for the user name Yarnzombie. It just seemed to make sense to me to keep the yarn separate from the cameras. Don't want things to get all tangly!

Also, I'm lufah on reddit, in case anyone is over here from the dogecoin subreddit. Hi! /waves
