A long time, and a lot of photos.

Yes, I know it’s been a long time since I last posted here, and I am sorry.

A few days after my roadtrip to kingston I left to spend half the summer in Brazil, my home country, and while I was over there my editing capacity was very limited (my laptop broke a few months back and so I had to rely on my ol’ gramma’s desktop).

I spent two awesome months there, and of course, took several photos. On the following weeks I’ll post all the different moments of my trip, starting with something very special:

Botafogo Bay and Sugar Loaf

This is where I was born, the Botafogo neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro.

I was lucky to get as a gift from a family member a helicopter tour over the entire city, and it was amazing to be able to see, and photograph, all those views I grew up with, from a different angle.

A different view of the Sugar Loaf, famous mountain in Rio.

The famous Copacabana Beach seen from the helicopter

The two brothers mountain, beside Ipanema beach.

The Lagoon, in the middle of the city.

Film Photography – the first photos.

And I’ve already developed my first 5 photos taken with the Minolta x700. I was just finishing the exposures on the film that was on the camera when it was given to me, that’s why only 5.

However I think I messed up in the development. I left the film to be developed as a B&W in the lab last week. Today looking for the film online, I find out that the film was the KODAK 400 CN, that is a special film made to be developed with C-41 instead.

So yeah, those are photos taken with a special B&W film made to be developed as C-41, and then developed as B&W. They were all taken before I actually understood the camera, or what was I doing. Tomorrow the first roll of color film will be ready, so stay tuned for more experiences.

For now, 4 fails and 1 win.

P.S. I did not have them printed, just the negatives developed, then scanned on a Kodak photo scanner.
