A ROLL OF FILM A MONTH // JULY, PT. V – last one, promise

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.

Funfact done.

A ROLL OF FILM A MONTH // MARCH, PT. 1 – THE ONE FROM ROME

So, It´s time for some more analogue love! Im pushing a lot of Kodak moments (litterally!) on my blog these days, simply just to get a jour with my project. Which I love to bits, btw. 

This particular roll of film was shot when hubby and I travelled to Rome march of this year. Yes, a whole roll of film over the duration of five days but what the heck – Italy deserves a roll of its own. Looking back at all the photos I took from this trip, these actually are some of my favorites. There´s just something special about shooting analogue that makes me put so much more effort into every shot. Perhaps it´s the not being able to view the photo directly after shooting, and the wonderful anticipation of what I actually managed to capture that makes it so unique. Also, it costs a crap load of money to buy the film and to have it digitalized and developed, so that helps to.

If ever in Rome, GET COFFEE HERE. It is said to make the best espresso in Italy. The cappuccino isn´t too bad either

I remember taking this photo just seconds after spending over 100 euros in Humana Vintage. I felt euforic and so so happy

Shortly after this photo was taken he threw his hands and the air and just stood there – not completely agreeing with his inventory list. So very Italian

Suddenly a wild orchestra appears

And I realized that opera actually is quite beautiful in the right settings

A sunny break at the Spanish steps. Some older guy tripped and rolled a few meters down. Imagine what a magnificent story. «I fell down the Spanish steps!»

We started everyday people watching at the Panteon

Funfact! Last year an equivalent to 1,5 million US dollars were tossed in the Trevi fountain. Now that´s some amount of wishes right there!

Prosjekt analog; en filmrull i måneden // november, del 1.

000414010017000414010025000414010027000414010022000414010018000414010024000414010016000414010030000414010033000414010031

I november lærte jeg…
… at når jeg starter på et prosjekt med den filmrullen som den tidligere Nikon-baby-eigeren påstår er den beste til nettopp mitt kamera, så skal jeg tro på det og ikke go ahead og kjøpe noe annet. I oktober gliste jeg fra øre til øre av bildene jeg fikk i retur, og greit nok så var de aller fleste tatt utendørs i noe som være DET BESTE oktoberværet jeg noen gang har opplevd, men jeg er også hellig overbevist om at filmen jeg brukte var mye bedre.

På novemberrullen lå der noen skuffelser å ventet på meg i form av nesten helt sort-grå bilder hvor jeg på enkelte ikke engang kunne se hvilket øyeblikk det var jeg hadde prøvd å forevige. Bare… kornete og mørkt. Men som jeg sa til superM, så er det vel akkurat de her tingene jeg lærer av. Nye filmruller er i alle fall bestilt (Kodak Portra 400, ilu missu comeback2me <3) og inntil de lander trygt i postkassen min ved huset i skauen skal jeg tenke litt annerledes og huske på at med innmaten jeg bruker nå så ser Nikonbaby dårlig i mørket, at ekte lens flare er magisk og dritpent (de sol-ring greierne på det første bildet) og at feiltagelser kan være rett så vakre.
