The Month on 35mm film October issue is here to bring you some #throwback snaps during wanderings at a funfair in the city, infused with a post-summer state of mind.
Back in August I have introduced this little series – Month On 35mm film – and it has been a fun ride ever since. Having to create this series allows me to shoot more, think analog and be more experimental with my photography. Of course it does come with some ups & downs, and unfortunately, October didn’t turn out to be a fruitful one. Most shots didn’t even turn out and few were too dark/fuzzy to include to the post. It is obviously a little disappointing after waiting for your roll to be turn out exactly how you hope it to be- all 27 of them not 10! In the age of everything that is instant and digital, holding onto something analog that it is time consuming and “risky” can prove to be challenging for the most part.
Above photos are all shot in Ostend, at the Belgian seaside, which is my adopted home. Most of them are from a funfair visiting the city back in somewhere in October- you can see me trying to beat a claw machine but fail miserably, then treating myself to my new obsession that is sugar coated grapes. The rest are few sights from the city. And my favourite shot has to be the 7am morning view with intensely beautiful pink-to-yellow sky!
The November and December issue will be the exact opposite of Month on 35mm film October- full of snaps and pretty pretty pretty eventful. So keep your eyes peeled for those, and in the meantime you can still have a little peek at Month on 35mm film September, if you haven’t already.
I would love to hear your thoughts on analog photography. Do you ever shoot on film? Or you’re more of a go-digital-or-go-home?
