Europe On Film Part One - Paris
Last week I finally got the last of the films developed from my Europe trip. I've been back for over two months and even though it was an amazing experience, it's sometimes easy to forget that I ever went especially living in small town where nothing seems to change. So getting these photos back was a lovely reminder and full of surprises - things I'd forgotten about or little camera quirks like an accidental double exposure.
These ones were taken in Paris on my old camera (which is basically on the same level as a disposable...) Paris was the first stop on my trip, and as I'd already done a lot of the touristy things on a holiday there a few years ago, I spent a lot of time just wandering around and getting lost. If I had to pick, the Latin Quarter was probably my favourite area to explore, but I don't think I would ever get bored of seeing the Eiffel Tower. A lot of time was spent eating nutella crêpes on either the Champs de Mars or the Trocadéro, arguing with friends from my hostel about which view was the best. The rest of the time was spent imagining I was walking along the Seine with Owen Wilson...
