Sam

This image was taken just over two years ago, in either December 2015 or January '16 (I really need to date my film after shooting). The reason I'm posting it now is because it is one of 36 photos on the first roll of film developed in my own home! Today, I blacked out my closet and regulated the kitchen sink temperature for some DIY development, and the first roll, Ilford HP5 400 35mm, was a success! 

Pictured is Sam at Brooks Brewing back home in Sterling Heights. Sam and I met in eighth grade, and he's still one of the most badass people I've ever known. We don't talk much anymore due to distance, work, life, etc., but I hope to see him soon and catch up over a game of MtG.
