Analog Friday

I have been really busy last week and even I wanted to, I haven't time to post anything an the blog since Monday. Hopefully, I will catch up with the 365 project over the weekend - I already have some photos prepared.

But today I want to add my second "Analog" post for the week, as I intended. This time a little set of photos from the last weekend trip to Wrocław. I will add more "extensive" post about it, but for now let's just say, that Wrocław is a city in western Poland, one of the biggest and oldest in the country. It has gorgeous Old City Quarter and beautiful Botanical Garden and Japanese Garden.

I had a chance to shoot some films that I really wanted to try for a long time, especially Fuji Reala 100, which is a great, but unfortunately discontinued film stock that has really great, natural colours. I was able to buy a expired roll of it and waited for a good opportunity to use it.

Second one was Kodak Porta 800, a professional-line stock with high sensitivity, that should give really nice colours (especially skin tones) and work really well in limited light situations.

Here are some photos:

Thank you!  In the first photo there was a pond in the back and then grass and more plants and flowers on the other side. I'm glad you liked it and other photos smile

You aren't kidding about the beautiful colors with the Fuji film! #1 is really nice.

Thanks Bethany! I read a little about the Reala film and it was supposed to be "the" Fuji daylight film. I'm glad I bought it :)
