Of Good and Evil(Film), Digitally Inspired

One of my first posts on this blog, titled Of Good and Evil, included a digital photo of this chapel that I edited to be black and white. I liked the photo so much that I decided to go back and take the same photo with my film camera, and this is the result. What do you think? How does the use of film affect the meaning of a photograph?

Edit: Burning
I remade the print for the same negative, but I increased the time of exposure, and I burned the roof of the chapel in the picture so that it would not stand out so much. However, this resulted in a slight loss of detail in the photograph.

About Me

My photo
I am a sophomore in college, studying Biochemistry and math, but I am a pilgrim for knowledge. I seek neither greatness nor acknowledgment, but rather to experience and understand the complex world of ours. My desire for this experiential journey of mine is to gain knowledge and wisdom and, more importantly, to form strong bonds of friendship with the individuals around me. This journey began in December of 2008, when a friend of mine died at the age of 17. In his short life, he had changed lives in ways that I never have done. I was struck by the beauty of the life that had been lost, and I made a promise that day to reach out to people around me; to live a life not wasted. My eyes were opened. My life was changed. My journey had begun.
