europe in photographs: pt. i

Thursday, September 5, 2013

I have to say, I'm quite glad I decided to shoot film. Though it's taken me a little longer to post these than it might have, the sensation of getting to see all of these images appear, in a packet of prints, and again on the computer screen, has been a joy. Like peeling off paper to find a little gem. It is crazy how film transports you back through time. I really do think the amount of time that passes between making the photograph and seeing it does something wonderful to the memories. They feel more pure that first time I see the image... a feeling I'm sure will disappear as these images become things looked at again and again throughout the years. But still, something worth noting. 

The images below are just a sampling. There will be many more parts to come. I will refrain from writing a giant story about each image, and instead let you just experience a few moments from our trip.

  1. You always make me swoon. I love how the white part of the poles touches the blue of the ocean perfectly, on the second to last image. (Did you do that on purpose?)

  2. Hi, Brittany. I'm one of Melina's friends who visited Portland earlier this summer, and kind-of-not-really met you. But I think you're perfect and incredibly talented, so hello! These photos feel so good and I love the videos and feeling/personal nuggets you post as well. It's all wonderful. As are you. Thanks for sharing with us!
