Film Is Awesome Sauce

i’ve been holding out on posting about my friend Debra‘s photography blog Film Is Awesome Sauce (nice parks & rec reference, deb) because i’ve been waiting for her posts to get to such a level that you can enjoy many HOURS of browsing. and browse you will, for she takes her camera basically everywhere she goes. photographing in film is no small task considering the time & effort & cash that goes into developing and scanning these days – but the results are oh so worth it. the richness of the colours never fail to wow me.

background story: Debra is the twin sister of Jessica, of Nook Eatery fame, and we have been friends for over 20 years (gosh we’re old). she recently moved to Johannesburg, which means that her subject matter has taken on a beautiful shift – from lush winelands scenery (see her post about the gardens at Babylonstoren – which i still haven’t visited yet) to crumbling art deco buildings in Springs… there’s lots to see.

and another thing, south africa is awesome (sauce). we need to travel & experience & document our own country more.
