Argentina | Buenos Aires

Written and Photographed by Cyntia Apps

 

I visited Argentina (Buenos Aires, Colonia de Uruguay, Iguazu Falls & Mendoza) last June 2015. I spent a total of 12 days in the northern part of that country. My husband and I drank 13 bottles of wine in 12 days!!!  Their Malbec was readily available in all restaurants for an average of $12 a bottle. Their food was outstanding. Their “asados” and “parrilladas” were out of this world. I also had lots of empanadas. They have a huge Italian influence, so pasta is very common in all restaurants. 

 

I stayed in the neighborhood of Recoleta. I highly recommend staying in that area, because it is close to most sights, and we were literally 2 blocks from the Recoleta Cemetery. The tombs in this cemetery are one more beautiful than the other, and they each have a immense historic value. Walking in that cemetery, was like opening a history book. 

A tour of Teatro Colon (in the pictures as well) is also a must. I liked it even more than their Tango Shows, and mind you, I loved their Tango Shows.
Something quite unique, I think I was able to document was their constant protests. They country was going through elections; so it was quite interested to had captured images of the unrest of the people during that time in their country’s life. 


I LOVED this city, I LOVED this country, I would definitely go back.

New England, USA | Ilford Camera Project

Written & Photographed by Kathleen Frank

I live in the northeast corner of the US, which is filled with small towns, a lot of history, and some beautiful mountain and coastal landscapes. We have a harsh winter, so when spring and summer roll around, everyone rushes outside to make the most of it. The farms and greenhouses come to life, and you’ll catch most people sneaking out of work early to go hiking or kayaking. I was so thrilled to try to capture the charm of New England with this little disposable camera. It was the perfect companion for some spring adventures.

This camera seriously took me right back to being a kid! We used to shoot these disposables all the time and rush to the grocery store to get them developed. It was so freeing to go back to such a simple type of shooting. Just aim and click! So easy!

I was also surprised with just how well the Ilford disposable did in different lighting conditions. It definitely favored a lot of light and loves full sun for a good contrasty image, but handled other situations really well, too. Some of my favorite images were from bright days with good cloud cover. It gave the images beautiful midtones and a bit more of that old black and white film feel, which I absolutely love! The camera even had some great results with sun flare. Having just a hint of flare gave the images a wonderful bit of sparkle, but I have a feeling that this could easily be overdone and wash out the images.

All in all, shooting and traveling with this camera was such a wonderful experiment, and I’m so excited to pick up a few more of these. Will definitely be adding them to my film shooting arsenal!
