the (first) European film reel

Being a photographer and trying to casually document vacations can be difficult - trying to pack your favorite camera gear is like trying to choose your favorite child… you just can’t. So I always travel with my trusty Canon 35mm film camera and my “daily digital” Nikon. But then once I’ve arrived wherever it is I’m going, the next hurdle presents itself; when I’m getting ready to go out exploring for the day, do I tote around both cameras? Or do I just choose one for the day…?

Usually I just choose to carry one camera with me at a time. Honestly carrying around one camera is distracting enough - if I carried both with me I wouldn’t be present for the actual vacation, I’d just be too busy snapping photos with both hands. So more often than not, I end up only bringing my digital out for the day.

Its not that I don’t love shooting film, because I absolutely do, but when I’m trying to choose between two cameras, it’s just that my digital is so…. easy. So I suppose these photos are a bit more special because they took a little more time and effort. The only problem with this method is that I end up with very choppy film reels. So, below I present you with a couple photos of Dublin, a couple of Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, a handful from Aberlour Scotland, and maybe three decent frames from Edinburgh. Maybe next time I’ll bring more film and leave the digital photography to Jed. (let’s be real, probably not).
