I love London - I don’t share that much here but we lived there for a whole year when we were younger so a piece of my heart is always there. Nowadays we go mostly to visit family and see friends - which means I get to play tourist in a city I just love!
This visit I got to meet the amazing Dawn(!!!) who some of you may know and remember from Candidly Cylde!! Dawn and I have known each other in blog land for over 8 years - I’m not entirely sure of the exact number but its definitely been at least that long and I must tell you that she is as amazing, funny and delightful in person!! I love it when blog friends become real world friends! Though now she is stuck with me as a real life friend haha, sorry Dawn :)
Anyway, we met at Hyde Park and ended up having a very touristy photo walk around, chatting away and taking photos happily as we went. It was the most perfect afternoon and just what I needed. I also got to use some of my first rolls of Kodak’s Ektachrome film which I’ve been very excited about since it was first announced. As I had never used it before, London seemed like a perfect time to put it through its paces.
How lush and crisp are the colours from this film - I’m glad I managed to get a sense of those colours with these scans but honestly - they look even more glorious in person. There’s something magical about holding slide film negatives up to the light for sure and this Ektachrome film, its got the magic!
Like the Ektar film in the previous posts I found this film really easy to scan, so I’m excited that I have another roll yet to put through the scanner, hopefully that roll turns out as well.
Film: Kodak Ektachrome - sent to me by Kodak Alaris, developed by AG Photolab and scanned by myself - a truly collaborative effort!
Camera: Canon EOS 750
Location: London baby, England
