Took me a while, but finally publishing the black and white 35mm photographs I took on my trip to Ostia Antica, an amazing archaeological site a short drive away from Rome. On one hand, I wish I’d used colour film to capture how breathtaking and well-conserved the frescoed walls and mosaics are, but on the other hand I always prefer black and white when visiting ‘touristic’ sites, especially those that deal with the past – cemeteries, ruins, parks, etc. These are places we commonly associate with colour, but seeing them in monochrome and high contrast really gives off that feeling of ‘past times’.
I have a few other rolls of film to post that should be coming in the next couple of days, so I promise I’ll try to stay active. I’m not taking any exotic trips this year so no beachy or tropical pictures to be expected in September (I still have to find the CD with the scans from the Philippines… it’s been a year!).
Meanwhile, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram and also click that little like button on the Facebook page for the blog. I’d really appreciate it because I’m starting to feel like giving up on posting pictures and just keeping them to myself… If you’d like to talk film or digital photography with me (or offer me a job!) I’m also 100% up for it.
See you soon!
