Before I left London for the summer, one of my photographer friends said “Whatever you’d gonna do in Paris, just don’t photograph in black and white.” I didn’t. But on that day it was grey enough, tempting enough. However, I still resisted and made use of the pulled out my old analogue camera, bought an overpriced film in a little corner shop and started snapping. This is what I got! I’m quite happy with the outcome as it makes the grey look utterly sleepy, cozy and just like the kind of Paris from the 50s.
By the way, I wrote (and snapped) something about the Parisian Belleville – which is very different to the classy central pictures right here – on Finding Berlin a few days ago. Check it out if you wish!
What are you latest analogue experiences? When I see these pictures I don’t understand why anyone would ever switch to the digital alternative to be honest. It makes such an aesthetic difference.
Anyways, stay tuned for a blog post coming up in the next couple of days that covers a topic which I never thought I would actually enjoy so much… x
