Pic number four – funny story. On our way to the botanical garden, our taxi passed a cemetery where the church and all the tomb stones were made in marble. Every grave was decorated so delicately with flowers, it was all marble, purple, blue and green. It looked so lovely and serene. On our way back I asked the taxi driver to stop at the cemetery so that I could get a quick pic, obviously not being specific enough when trying to explain what a c e m e t e r y actually was.
«You know, where people are buried after they die. Eternal sleep. Laying in the ground. No?»
«Ok, yes, I understand», he said, and then he took me to this place on picture number four. On the inside I was screaming NO WHAT THE PHUCK, but as the calm collected and well mannered gal that I am I politely got out of the taxi with leather seats (WHY would anyone have leather seats when its like one trillion degrees outside) and got a sweaty shot of whatever that thing is.
One afternoon, after eating sweet blod red cherries and scrumptious peaches at the outdoors fruit- and vegetable market Hala Targowa, my shopping crazy sisters decided to go to a mall near by. Instead of joining them I went for a long walk in the city for a couple of hours. All alone, and it was totally perfect. I thrive on some alone time, and I took the opportunity to get completely lost in the city, only my Nikon and I. I walked and walked and walked and sometimes realized I had been going in circles, probably from me looking up all the time at the amazing architecture. Most of these pics are from those few hours, and the rest of them will be posted in my next (and final) part of the analog projec, Gdansk edition.
seeing this particular roll of film I realize that I just might have a thing for windows and doors. The weather this week was amazing, and my very first magnificent taste of real summer. Spring in Norway can be a harsh and depressing experience, so skirts, open shoes and shoulders burnt to a crisp from the burning sun was just perfect.
city kept me looking up up up! So much amaze. I love the nostalgic feel of film photography. These photos are 100 % untouched, straight from the film. Except for the correction of the horizon on the white/green window pic. My OCD got me real hard and I JUST CAN´T STAND horizons that are off.
We ate a fancy stake dinner at the restaurant just outside the St. Mary´s church, followed by a shot of plum liquor on the house for dessert. Eating and drinking is half the fun when traveling, am I right? Chin-chin!
The hot sun called for lots and lots of sit-downs at local cafés for cool drinks and re-hydration. Some of our favorites were Kahlua-Oreo-milkshakes, alle the mojitos and the ginger sailor.
That´s it for part two!
