Film Photography: Forgotten Series Part 3

Sunday, May 24, 2015

Hey guys! For the last part of the forgotten series I thought I'd share some of the best.  I can't believe I didn't share these before because I definitely wouldn't want them to be forgotten or lost deep in some folder. If you'd like to see more photos or read the other parts of this trip before you read this one, you can find them hereherehere and here.

The last day of our trip was a day of exploring. We thought we would start off far from the airport than work our way toward it and of course fly back home. So we decided to make a stop at Side and Manavgat. You already know why Side was in our plan, that little city is full of ancient ruins that are worth seeing. Another place I thought would be nice was to go to Manavgat because there is a waterfall there. And it's a quite popular one too. So I thought we could enjoy a bit more nature before we got back to the city. When we go there we saw that the area surrounding the waterfall is kind of taken over by shops and cafe like places but overall it felt good to be there. A good place to relax, explore and enjoy. I think I took some of my favorite photos here. I love the scenery and all the bokeh in the photos as well as the vibrant colors. Spotting the parrots was the highlight of this little spot :)

Since we are talking about favorites, which one of these photos are your favorite? I would love to know <3

Film Photography: Forgotten Series Part 2

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Hello everyone! I started this series the other day and I thought I'd finish it off without taking any breaks. Finals are coming up and I want to be active on here as much as I can while I have the chance. Right now I don't have much time to take photos for my other post ideas because I'm not home during the day. So until then I will continue sharing film photos :) 

I really love exploring. Living in a big city has thought me that you can find anything around any corner. And I know that it's never ending. I have seen lots of places in Istanbul but I'm nowhere close to seeing all.  But I don't feel bad about it because having fun with it is what matters to me the most. And that is exactly what we decided to do when were at vacation. When we were exploring Side (small city in Alanya) and taking photos of the ancient ruins we made a sudden decision to ride a camel. We had no idea they provided camal rides and I was reluctant at first but then I thought I'd miss out and so there we were, me and my sister on a camel. It was weird, fun, exciting and a bit scary but definitely a great moment. And the first two photos below are reminders :) So have you ever ridden a camel before or would like to one day? 
P.S.  This is not the last part so stick around to see what comes up next! I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite shots.

Film Photography: Forgotten Series Part 1

Sunday, May 10, 2015

Hey guys! I haven't been around for a while and the only reason for it is because I couldn't think of anything to write about. So when I was looking through some film photos yesterday I realized that I totally forgot to share some of them with you from my last vacation. And I thought to myself since it's summertime now I might as well add a little sunshine to this space. 

I took these photos in Alanya and I actually did share some photos of the Ancient Theatre and the Temple of Apollo from this trip on here before. I don't know what happened after those two because I had a lot of photos to share from that trip. I guess I got carried away. I decided to make this into a three part series because I'm going to divide them up into categories. The ones I'm sharing with you today are the ones I took at the hotel we were staying at. The first three is at the beach, the one of my sister is our route to the beach, second to last is our view from our room (even though we weren't facing the sea I still liked our view) and the last one is from our first dinner at the hotel :) It's actually almost time for going on vacations, have you guys planned anything yet?
P.S.: There were more photos but after getting these develeoped some came out overexposed. The sun was super bright so I should've definitely taken that -more- into consideration when taking the photos. Lesson learned :)
