Black and white film always takes longer to get back from the lab. When I was in the Maritimes, I loaded a roll of TMax 400 into my Pentax K1000 just in case I felt like using it. During my time there, I hardly used it, and when I got home I hadn’t even shot the whole roll, and it sat in my camera for another couple weeks before I finished it off.
I like colour photography more, probably because I was raised and live in a world of colour. They also seem more real. When I look at black and white photographs, even ones I shot myself, they seem like they were made long ago. No matter how modern the content, or how recent the event, I feel like I am looking back into the first half of the 20th century.
