Poitiers, France in 35mm Film

Holly, Parc de Blossac

I've always felt that film captures memories more beautifully. Not just because of the colors or the grainy aspect to them, but there's just something about shooting on 35mm film that you simply can't always achieve on digital. These pictures were shot during our last semester at University, whilst we were living in the French town of Poitiers.



Already I miss my flat, it's wooden creaky floorboards and french charm. The narrow cobbled streets and the ancient churches & cathedrals spread throughout the town. The architecture, capturing every light of the day so beautifully, especially at dusk. I miss walking through the square to get myself a super cookie or croissant aux amandes, I miss being able to walk to Zara and to the cinema. Spending hours wandering around the park. And most of all, I miss seeing my friends every other day. I've loved living in this town, already I feel isolated in the countryside, especially with the chilly rain that seems to loom over our heads every day! These pictures capture Holly & I making the most of Poitiers!

None-the-less, I'm happy to be home and I can't wait to start enjoying the summer. Keep your eyes peeled for another film pictures post soon, and after that perhaps a little post on the french countryside house & gites? (If the sun ever emerges from the clouds!)
