April 2018 on Film, Part 2

The second half of April 2018 images captured on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here. You can also view the first half of my film images in this post.

April brings the awakening of flowers in our yard. Also in April, my husband and daughter built a small garden in our backyard. Trips to the beach are a must as the weather warms up, one out of focus image and other quiet moments around the house documented.

Once again, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for capturing these images.

May film images currently underway. I will share them in June.

April 2018 on Film, Part 1

I have had these images developed for over two weeks now, and I am just now getting the chance to post them! May is proving to be quite a busy month with end of the year activities for my girls, and of course, Week In The Life, which I participated in last week.

Nevertheless, I am still committed to this personal project and excited to share my quiet moments of April 2018, photographed on 35mm film. You can read more about my photography project for this year here.

A few of my favorite people are captured this in the first half of this month - my parents and my youngest daughter. My parents were in town for a week at the beginning of April, visiting for Easter.  So happy that I captured the portrait of my mom.  You'll also see her famous gumbo, captures from a dinner party, walks around town, paintings, afternoon baths, and simple corners of my home.  I also love how you can tell the weather is getting warmer from these photos.

Once again, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for these images.

Second half of April on film coming soon.

March 2018 on Film, Part 2

The second half of March 2018 images captured on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here. You can also view the first half of my film images in this post.

Our Spring Break was the last week of March this year.  I had originally packed my digital camera, and realized that I forgot to bring a memory card.  Hence, you will notice that I took more than one image in Asheville, North Carolina simply because I couldn't help but document the beauty that I encountered there. Being flexible with this project and making it work for me.

This month, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for capturing these images.

Film images in April currently underway.  And as always, I will share in this space in May when I develop my film.

March 2018 on Film, Part 1

Quiet moments of March 2018, photographed on 35mm film. I wrote a bit more about my personal photography project for this year here.

I love how this project is keeping a camera in my hand. Sometimes I forget how much I love photography. Sometimes it feels like a hassle to carry my film camera wherever I go.  But getting my images back just makes my heart melt. And for that, I am grateful.

The beginning of March found me in Scottsdale, Arizona on a girls' trip. It was extremely hard to take only one photo a day during that trip! Also, Spring has begun to pop up in my images. I love how that is reflected in and around my home.

This month, I used my Pentax K1000 and Kodak UltraMax 400 35mm film for these images.

The second half of March, soon.

Travels | île d'Orléans

Today I'd like to share the last of my film photos from our trip to Québec City, Québec.

You can see my previous images here: Travels | Québec City, Part 1 and Travels | Québec City, Part 2 

île d'Orléans is a small, quaint island located in the Saint Lawrence River, about three miles east of downtown Québec. We rented a scooter to explored the island for an entire day on our own.

Vignoble Ste-Pétronille - beautiful views and winery.

We continued on to Chocolaterie de Île d’Orléans - the absolute best chocolate I have ever tasted.

I ran into this nice lady sitting down with her watercolor pad and watercolors, and immediately fell in love.

We absolutely enjoyed our anniversary trip.

The people of Québec City were so nice, and the city itself, so quaint. I cannot wait to go back!

More pictures from our trip to Québec City, Québec. You can see my first installment here.

We stayed at the Auberge Saint-Antoine and I highly recommend it.  Located in the Vieux Port of Québec City, it was so convenient to walk everywhere. Such a quaint hotel, and one of my favorite parts of our visit was simply enjoying the room.

We had our own expresso maker in the room, and we spent early afternoons with the windows wide open enjoying a daily cup of expresso.  I enjoyed it so much that when we returned, I promptly ordered my own expresso machine.

One more installment of photos coming up - our day trip to Île d'Orléans, a quaint island about 15 minutes from downtown Québec City.

Travels | Québec City, Part 1

 Hello Quebec City

To celebrate our wedding anniversary this year, my husband and I decided to celebrate in Québec City, Québec.  This was our very first time to Québec, and we had an excellent trip. Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in Canada's mostly French-speaking Québec province. Almost everyone speaks French, but were happy to switch over English for us!

 Azzari Jarrett | Old Quebec City

I packed only my Pentax K1000 for this trip. Mostly because I miss shooting with it. And it did not disappoint.

I absolutely loved the charm of Old Quebec. It actually felt like we were in Europe.  Very easy to walk around and we loved the sites and sounds of Old Quebec. 

More photos, soon.

------------------

I've been thinking about a photography project for November.  One photo a day with a few words, just to capture a daily gratitude - similar to habit where I had the pleasure of contributing last year.  And of course, I'm already thinking of ways to document.
