Ever since Alex first started taking pictures on his film camera in Cape Town, I was fascinated by how cool the concept of film photography is.
Instead of taking a hundreds of photos and being able to look at them right away, with a film camera you are very selective about what you take a photo of and how many pictures you shoot. The fact that you have to wait for the film to be developed makes it so very exciting, because you don’t know what the pictures will turn out until they have been developed.
Last week, Alex sent me these film photographs, which he took during the time, that he was in Europe. They are beautiful memories from our time in Italy, Munich and from other day trips we did. I love that these photos are all so raw, real and unposed, which is how memories should be captured.
Italy- Portofino & Verona
We did a little Italy road trip and drove from Munich via Verona to Portofino. In the below photographs you can see me in my element: eating mango on the balcony or a munching on a peach whilst posing around in towels with Julia. One of my highlights of this trip was the time we spent on the boat driving along Portofino’s coast.
Inbetween we also spent a couple of days in Munich. It was nice having to show Alex around my hometown, because that way I was able to look at it differently and remember all the nice things about Munich. One day we got ourselves takeaway and sat in the sun at the Englische Garten- a moment that I will never forget.
Königsee & Salzburg
One day in September Alex and I took the car and drove to Salzburg in Austria. The weather was perfect and we just strolled around this beautiful city. Afterwards we drove to the Königsee in Germany and took a boat out on the lake. If it wasn’t for showing Alex around Bavaria, I probably would have never done that. The Königsee is so breathtaking and the nature around it is truly unique. If you ever find yourself in the south of Germany, I highly recommend visiting it.
