To the Smokies | Gatlinburg, TN

James and I escaped the Midwest for our first backpacking trip ever. I left my digital behind and only brought film. It was a refreshing choice, not only because it's lighter, but because it limited my time behind the lens and allowed me to spend more time simply enjoying what stood before me. Here are some of my favorites. I love the little light leaks and the surprise of the final photos weeks later.
