I tried to capture some of my daily life as a postgraduate student in Cambridge (2018–2019) through a disposable camera, just so that later in the future I can look back at this time through a particularly nostalgic lens. Here’s me in that future looking back and cataloguing some of my routines.

First, a couple shots from my neighborhood.

This is just the view from my bathroom window. You may notice a football field in the back. Occasionally football players would knock on our door asking if a wayward football had ended up in our backyard or not.

I took these photos in the summer of 2019 in several locations across England and never had a chance to share them. Looking back at these pictures now brings a strong sense of nostalgia, made only more prominent by the blurry low-quality retro vibes resulting from the disposable camera use.

Here are some shots of Cambridge.

This pub was only about 5 minutes from my house. You can get a heaping plate of fish and chips for only 5 pounds on a Sunday night there, and it’s popular with students living in the colleges nearby.
