Life in black & white //

I’ve always been curious about shooting in black and white film. But (for a number of reasons) I was intimidated so I put it off until I got a roll of Ilford Delta 400 in a $5 “mystery box” from my local camera shop. It was the little push I needed and I knew the time had come for me to try it out.

Here are a few of my favourite pictures from the roll I shot in Edmonton.

A stroll through… Paris: The Eiffel Tower Edition //

Last December, I had the opportunity to travel to Paris for a short trip. I had 5 days in the city and decided to bring my sister along so that we could sightsee together. It turned out to be the best decision.

After visiting Paris, I don’t know why I hadn’t gone sooner! There were so many things that brought me joy there (like the kindness of the people, the beauty of the city and the food) but I thought I’d start this Paris series with the place we went to see first – The Eiffel Tower.

A stroll through…London Zoo //

This past May, I visited my family in London for two weeks. The first weekend I was there, the weather was very warm and sunny so we decided to go to the zoo!

I hadn’t been to the zoo in years before this visit so I brought my camera along to capture this moment. My 12 year old nieces were amazed by the concept of an analog camera so after explaining the basics to them, I handed over the camera and let them shoot a whole roll. Watching them discover the intricacies of film photography (“There’s no screen? How can you tell what you took??”) was a lot of fun and the three of us had a good time.

Here are some of the photos they took! I think they did a fantastic job for their first time 🙂
