While away on a cabin escape for the winter holiday with my love, I felt the familiar pang to reach for a camera and document something beautiful unfolding in front of me- only this time I grabbed a video camera. Truly this was the first time I have answered a call to film something deeply meaningful to me. The result is much less polished technically than my photography, but it is equally heartfelt.
In reflection after filming this brief scene, I asked myself why I felt that compulsion: it was a response to witnessing someone fall in love (with a Mamiya 645).
What a gift that a delightful Arcade Fire song was playing in the background; their new album was the soundtrack to our trip.
