Denver, Colorado

Instant City Tour Denver

Photographs made with multiple instant cameras and film.
April has been declared “Polaroid” month by Instant Film lovers in France and Italy. So my Instant and Film Photo Artists group and I decided to heed the challenge. Since many members of our Instant Film Group live around the world,  we thought it would be really fun to take instant film shots in our respective hometowns to let everyone have an “Instant City Tour via Instant Film.” For this challenge, I chose to utilize several different instant film cameras and films. I used my Polaroid SX-70 and Polaroid 680 SLR cameras using The Impossible Project Films (Color Protection, Gen. 2.0, Silver and Gold frame, some expired film), the Polaroid Land Camera 250 using Fuji FPC100 and 3000B, and the Fuji Instax Wide using Fuji film.  As you will see as I went around Denver, Colorado, shooting away, and experienced a variety of results. Many not realized as I had envisioned but a fun challenge! I hope you enjoy your visit to Denver, Colorado.  Enjoy and exploring the world!

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Instantly Happy

All pictures made with Instax Mini 90-Neo Classic

April is the month of instant photography (as of last year when the French photographers organized a few events across France). You can read more about the project here - EXPOLAROID.

I thought it would be nice to document a little bit of my Friday's city visit with my friend Ana and what else to do it with if not with my brand new instax mini 90 - NEO CLASSIC. Gosh do I like this little fella!

First we had some coffee. There's cable railway up to Ljubljana castle in the back.

Then we headed towards Ljubljana market place where something called "An Open Kitchen" is happening on Fridays and Saturdays. It's about city's restaurants offering their food on a special market.

We chose spinach-feta-pine nuts pie from here (although all the sweets were really tempting too).

You can see how busy it was but it's only about 1/4 of all of it.

After the food we went for another cup of coffee and some cake to our favourite cake place. Here you can see a bit of Ljubljana castle up on the hill. This is also THE city center and it's really beautiful and worth a visit.

The other side of previous photo. This are the Three Bridges crossing river Ljubljanica.

The view from our table at the cake shop. Loads of people and tourists strolling about or sitting in the sun and relaxing. Just like we were, only we chose the shadow as it was just too hot :)

It was a memorable day and I wish I took more photos. But it was so lovely to just sit and chat that I enjoyed those moments instead. I did take a photo of Ana but I gave it to her :)
