Last year for my birthday I was in Mexico City and Enrique and his dad bought me a blackberry cheesecake from the bakery across the street (I love cheesecake).
A few days later the film jammed, and I had to roll it back to fix it. I wanted to experiment more with color, so instead of putting the roll right back into my camera, I made a mental note not to forget the photos I had already taken and loaded a roll of color film. I of course forgot, so when I loaded that black and white roll again in October when a good friend of my dad's came to visit, I was photographing over the pictures from my birthday.
I didn't find out until getting the film developed months later, just a few days before my birthday this year. Today I am 24, spending the day for the most part at home, reflecting on the past year and where I may be headed, and appreciating the people who continue to support me and make me feel special on my birthday, even when we're so far away.
