Paris In Black And White

Photography, Travel and Other Adventures

When I visited Paris in September I decided to bring four rolls of Kodak Tri-x with me – one roll for each day. I am not sure what made me decide to bring black and white film of all things, but I am really glad I did.

I knew I was going to take my darkroom class eventually and in the back of my mind I decided that I wanted to develop this film myself. So I stuck it my desk drawer until this past March. It was a delight to develop this film after having visited several months ago. It was fun to relive the memories of being there! I’ve also been printing many of the prints which has also been fun. The last time I was in the darkroom the other person in there was also printing something from when he visited Paris. It was really cool to compare stories.

  1. You took B&W because that’s what real photographers do! You’re not relying on color to make a great photograph. And so far, it looks like you’ve done just that. Besides, Paris is amazing in color or B&W! If you’re not familiar with him, look up Eugรจne Atget. He’s one of my all-time favorite photographers. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Paris!


    1. Aww! Thank you!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You comment made my day. Actually, you mentioned Eugene Atget on one of the posts I posted during my trip and so I bought a book of his photography at the Musee d’Orsay! I love his stuff, too! The book is in French so I can’t understand any of it but his photography is amazing.


      1. Ha! I’m a broken record! Well, he’s so good, you should buy a second book!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you need any darkroom equipment??? I found a bunch of stuff I’m not going to use anymore. I’ll gladly send it to you.
