Europe in 35mm

My favourite photos from my travels are always the ones taken with film. Unlike digital, with film there is no quest for perfection; you just click the shutter and hope the memories last forever, imperfect as they may be. These captured moments from my time in France, Italy, and Switzerland were taken on both my Canon A-1 and Nikon L35AF with my favourite colour films: Kodak Ultramax 400, Fujifilm Superia 200, and Kodak Ektar 100.

Venice, Italy

After the wedding in Bordeaux, France, my family and I made our way to Venice to begin the Italian chapter of our European vacation. Located in the Veneto Region of north-eastern Italy, Venice is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that receives over 30 million tourists a year. The city itself is home to only 50,000 people - the lowest population in centuries - but the exorbitant amount of tourists makes Venice a lively (and crowded) place. Looking beyond the tourists, it's fascinating to observe a city on water and all the nuances of such a place; the traffic jams in the canals, the public services on boats, and the modified infrastructure. The architecture in Venice is primarily Venetian-Gothic inspired by Byzantine and Moorish styles of the 14th century, creating a skyline of pointed arches, ornate spires, and elaborate decoration. Venice is truly a photographer’s dream; although we were only in the city for an evening, a few hours of exploring was more than enough time to fill my memory card with colourful images of the floating city.
