Travelling isn’t just about getting on airplanes, buying souvenirs and taking pictures (ironically). Travelling is about breathing new air, experiencing great moments, and bringing back with you not keychains but memories. These pictures are artefacts of history, bookmarks of a thrilling page in your life, not postcards to show others the local monuments and landscapes. They’re images to remind you of things you smelled, smiles you received, laughter that escaped you, delicious things you ate, moments […]
In December, I picked up my trusty Canon AE-1 and decided to go for a walk along the sea with my friend Caterina (of Kateidoscope.com). Do I miss home? Yes. Do I miss Rome? Yes. Do I miss my boyfriend? Absolutely. But it's nice here. Actually, it's pretty damn gorgeous, and I'm going to enjoy my time here as much as I can.
This is it, the last one. Thank you for accompanying me on my 35mm analog photography trip through the humid and heavily vegetated streets of Manila and the shores of liquid mercury of the Philippines in general. This is a final compilation of photographs taken inside a very beautiful church, the name of which escapes me. Most of them I’m not posting since it was dark and they came out blurry, but I particularly like the […]
Some more 35mm shots from Manila. Have another post coming soon of the church we visited and will get the last two rolls of film from Paris soon so I can finally start posting the pictures of that trip that aren’t portraits of Gabriele. Even though I’d kill to have more portraits of him. One thing that struck me about Manila once you left the “rich district” is how much green there is. It’s a complete contrast […]
You know I tend to take a lot of random pictures when I really want to finish a roll of film. Since I have a strong tendency to switch between my Canon AE-1 and my Canon T50, there’s almost always an unfinished roll of film in one of them. I forget about the one I was using and pick up whichever one is closest, though I’m growing very fond of the AE-1. Some of these […]
As promised here are the black and white photographs I took back during our Prague vacation in May of last year. Camera at this point was probably the Canon AE-1 I bought over there and film most likely Ilford 100… which, for some reason, I can’t find anymore? I can only find the ISO125 one. Does anyone know what happened to the Ilford 100? Where did it go? If you don’t know by now the Ilford 100 is my […]
So I had a massive introduction written for this post which got completely erased when I tried to insert the pictures (thank you WordPress). Now I’m a bit out of patience so I’ll keep it short. Back in May 2014, Gabriele and I did our first little trip together to Prague. It was cold, we had to buy coats at Zara. We ate hotdogs in the street, I got drunk at a place called “Zombie Bar” […]
Hello world, long time no see! I’ve been busy trying to find something to do with this horrid BA – Masters hiatus, so I ended up forgetting the little things that make me happy: long walks, architecture, photography and this blog. I just noticed I never posted the pictures I took when the man of my life came to spend a week in my hometown. We had a lot of fun and I made sure […]
