Ah Paris...

Just this week, DianaAmanda and Morgan and Kim have all shared film photos from Paris... and its been great to see them and remeber, I miss it so much! So I thought I'd share a few more photos that I haven't on here, it's been a while and I want some colour and sunshine. (Anyone else feeling remarkably uninspired by the dreary weather, where is Spring?!)

 Have a great weekend!!

Paris in film: Lomo X-Pro Part II

In my last post about this film, I said that I didn't like it - and considering that I've been looking at these photos since September when we delevoped them, I can say that is still true. However I find myself in the same position with these photos as I was before... I love the composition and the content, but that green tint... ick.

I know I could Photoshop them and I might try on a few, but it seems silly to do that when I chose to use a cross-processed slide film, you expect colour shifts, I just didn't expect to not like it lol.

These photos are my favourite from the film I used in my Yashica Samurai.

p.s. I still have some Paris photos to share, are you bored yet? I took so many...

Paris in film: Lomo Xpro

The last time I blogged about Paris I gushed about the Lomography X-pro Chrome film because when I love something... I really love it. But when I don't... I really don't.

And I do not like this Lomography X-pro film (not to be confused with the X-pro Chrome). In fact I'm incredibly frustrated as I really do love the composition, angle and content of these photos, yet the choice of film has really spoilt them for me. It's taken me this long to upload them onto Flickr and on here just because of the disappointment. What do you think?

I love the cross processed distortion with the sunset photos because the colours were rich and gorgeous, and as with the chrome, the blues and turquoises are lovely, yet the overall green/yellow tone in these seems sickly and insipid in comparison to me. I really want to like them... but I just can't seem too.

On another note, these photos were taken at the Le Grande Arch de la Defence, which is outside the main city of Paris in the business district and it was a massive culture shock for us after spending the week in the city. It felt like we had travelled to the future haha.
