As I write this, I’m painfully aware of the fact that I have several rolls of film in my room waiting to be developed. Instead of dropping them off at the store, I’ve been spending some time looking through my google drive folder of old photos. So in the spirit of the name of this blog, I’ve decided to curate a few of the forgotten ones I’ve yet to share.
Update, Nov/4: So I finally dropped off the rolls of film to the camera store yesterday! I also picked up some fresh rolls (including my first lomography film) and got a great deal on a rangefinder off e-bay. Finally feeling inspired after a long time!
Please sit back and enjoy this nostalgic edition of “A stroll through…”.
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.
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 🙂
