I Was Shooting Color Film One Day...

Yesterday I was out shooting with my Yashica Mat 124G during my little hometown’s annual parade. My sister-in-law asked me if I was shooting with black and white film. I told her that I actually was shooting color film this time.

My seven year old niece must have overheard our conversation as a few moments later she asked me in an excited tone if I was really shooting color film.

I was a little bewildered as I didn’t expect her to be familiar with my body of work, or photographic methodology to even get excited that I’ve been shooting a lot of color lately. I let her know that yes, I indeed was shooting color film at the parade. She processed the information for a moment and then asked then me the following question.

“Do you have any in purple?”
