Mishmash on one 35mm roll
When we return from any journey, it gives me a great pleasure to develop rolls of film. While going through scans I can revisit all the places that made impressions on me.
If you are anything like me, you usually forget names of people you just met. It takes me a special technique of repeating the name immediately after it was given and that leaves deeper impression in my memory. When we travel it is just too much visual information to remember them all, so in a sense I need some tricks if I want to keep them in me longer. It helps to revisit photographs of the places we visited. Especially with images developed at home, in peace. They’ll leave deeper and lasting impressions than quicker snaps on the go.
I’ve already wrote about island Pag and Bura wind. It is a very special landscape that I love very much. Light and colours there are talking to me in a subtle ways. It is a connection that defines logic.
Another one from island Pag, where strong sunshine, no clouds and relentless Bura wind created this deep blue colour of the Adriatic, washout almost white land and light blue sky.
It was a peaceful morning and we were sitting on a terrace drinking coffee. Roses, red roses my favourite, framed this scene of a traditional wooden boat and a seagull resting. I wanted to remember this softness of the morning, colours lit like watercolour painting, and scent of roses in the air.
Small town Nin, so popular with tourists. It belongs to Zadar region as well as Pag.
What I wanted to remember during winter months from Nin is this scene. Empty, sleepy street, lazy cat napping, someone left a bike and went for an afternoon nap as well. Peace. Only crickets chirping as it is summer.
It was a hazy hot day with South wind blowing which was perfect for sailing. A picture to end the summer. Blown with a wind. This is the view from Zadar. An island that is so small and first to be seen is Ošljak and right behind it is Ugljan. Croatia, a land with over 1200 islands.
Something completely different for the end of today’s post.
It is about barefoot shoes. I love nature, and my connection with it is vital for me and it goes all the way to wearing and preferring natural clothes, shoes, etc. As so called barefoot or zero drop shoes are difficult to find and as a photographer spending so much time in wet and muddy conditions (Irish weather and all) I needed a good Wellies. I am just putting this information for people like me – I found amazing Wellies, barefoot, zero drop, natural rubber and they are from a Danish company Mikk Line
The only problem is, they are producing for kids mainly, so size 38 is the biggest. Thank God for my small feet 😉
