On holidays next to my iPhone and SLR camera I usually wonder around with a bright pink plastic analogue camera around my neck. I love playing with my Diana mini, and although they are usually not the best of pictures, they are the ones that end up in the photo album.
Today was the excitement of finding out if I had not forgotten to take the lenscap off and if the photolab could deal with my random sized pictures. -it normally takes square images, but with multiple exposure I’m sometimes tempted to make the roll one long panoramic picture)-.
They all came out fairly alright. Some random overlapping between events and one I really don’t know what I’ve done with it, but looks pretty cool. Here as promised a selection from what I’ve taken in Italy. (there were also christmas pictures on the roll, but it’s not really the time for that).
Two churches in one at the San Marco Piazza.
Relaxing at the waterside beside some gondola’s.
I’ve got a weakness for decorated bows around church entrances.
Romantic locks at the house of Juliette.
Suppose a little overexposed, it’s like someone scratched off only bits of the picture.
Not all summer holidays take place in the blazoning sun. Despite my optimism by packing summer dresses, my favourite item of the week became my raincoat that I last minute put on as it was raining here.
However we did still have some sunny moments with 29°C at its peak in Bologna, and as it was mainly a city trip that was almost too much for us.
And the stripy ‘gondola’ top I made was perfect for Venice.
I’m not really one for Maria statues, and the reason I like this one is probably more for the little frames next to it and the sweet dried flowers.
Architectural my favourite building in Venice; the Doge’s Palace. Beautiful Venetian Gothic style and a warm salmon-pink colour (which you can’t quite see in the picture, you need real sunlight for that).
More pictures are made with my analogue Diana Mini, so will have to wait till they are developed to show them. Fingers crossed they come out alright.
