6. These are Hard Times for Dreamers

In order to comfort Amélie, her mother gives her a second-hand Kodak.

"What have you done?"

A neighbour makes her believe that her camera causes accidents to happen. Since she's been taking pictures all afternoon, Amélie finds herself in deep worry in the evening. She collapses in front of the televison, feeling guilty for a fire, derailments and the crash of a Boeing.

 

For FF: With your cameras

 

I actually haven't used this film Minolta. I bought it in a thrift shop and I'm not even sure if it still works. I tried taking mirror pictures with my DSLR but my mirror's pretty dusty and I didn't really want to move furniture around so I could have a plain, less distracting background. I saw all the Holga cameras on the flickr group and decided to reach for my film camera, and the results were a hundred times better. And it reminded me of that scene in Amelie when her mother gave her a boxy, old Kodak.

 

(I feel like a really bad flickr contact. I hardly ever comment on people's streams.)
