Paris / 03




Most of the pictures in this post are from our third day in Paris. I convinced Louis to get up early in the morning with me to walk up to Sacré-Cœur, while there weren't many tourists around yet. I also love being up early in the morning - the atmosphere feels great when everyone's still asleep and the sun is rising.
Usually it should have only taken us about 5 minutes to get up the hill, but I took my film camera with me (as well as my digital one), so of course I got distracted taking photos on our way up there. Unfortunately I couldn't remember if the film in my camera already had pictures on it (since I hadn't used it for a long time), but decided to give it a go anyway.
Well, after a while I realised I had taken quite a lot of photos, and the thought kicked in that maybe my camera didn't actually have any film in it at all... So once we got to Sacré-Cœur I just had to check. Of course, there was no film inside. Bummer.
Oh well, at least I knew, and I still had my digital camera with me, as well as 'another' roll of film. So on our way down I took more photos - digital as well as film. Only thing is that wounding back the film later on was really hard and it felt like it was stuck somewhere inside the camera. Definitely shouldn't have felt the way it did. Anyway, film's always a bit of an adventure, so we'll see what it turned out like - if there are any pictures on it at all ;)





I'm planning on showing you a couple more sets of pictures of Paris, and then I'll go back to more usual posts. I hope you've been enjoying seeing lots and lots of travel photos so far. If you're planning on going to any one of these places and you need some advice or tips you can always let me know. Happy to help out!

    Arghh, I can imagine the situation with the film - had the same when travelling last month ... but as you say, film is an adventure :)

    1. Thanks, Nancy!
      Sorry you had to experience the film situation yourself - do you get any pictures out of it in the end?

    2. Yes, and I even liked some of them a lot! I think it's like cross-processing, you don't know what you get and you can't reproduce it, but the results are sometimes fantastic :) Crossing my fingers for your film - looking forward to see what you got out of it!

    1. Aww, thanks so much Giulia! That's really sweet of you. And thanks for actually counting the photos to let me know which ones are your favourites - really interesting to hear!
      If you know of a place that does big prints let me know, and I'd happily figure out an affordable deal with you and pass on the photo :) I'll also have a look to see if there are any good printing places out there, will let you know if I find something.

    1. Thank you, Kristyn! I think the experience and feel you get from a city depends a lot on who you're with and what you're doing and seeing - so definitely go and find out for yourself sometime :)
