Needless to say, I was very excited to visit Denmark and see Katie, but I was less-than-ecstatic about the 8 hour flight to and from.
While we were there, I shot two rolls of film. I ended up running out of film and didn’t have a backup! Almost magically, we turned the corner and Photografica was there waiting for me.
