Another belated post of vacation photos. Rodrigo and I traveled to Mexico this past May to celebrate his birthday. We visited 4 cities in 8 days. It was a jam-packed schedule but we still managed to find time to relax at the beach.

I have a ton of pictures from Frida Kahlo’s home in Mexico City. I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the beautiful blue walls and the lush gardens. Oaxaca was also a super fun city to photograph. I loved the bustling marketplace.

My biggest goal was to use two rolls of film in a short amount of time. I was just shy of that, but I’m very happy with the photos I ended up with.

Two weekends ago, I left my Leica point-and-shoot film camera on the IKEA Ferry on the way to Red Hook. It took me four hours (basically on the way back to Manhattan) to realize it was even missing. Rodrigo said I had acted like it was “the end of the world”. I was more upset over the lost film than the actual camera itself (even though the camera also had sentimental value). I don’t care if I have to spend $100 for another camera exactly like it, but I didn’t know if I was ever going to get a chance to go to Machu Picchu again!

Needless to say, I developed that roll of film the very next day. Circle Line Lost & Found, thank you!!!

And of course, because I’m bad at shooting in film, this roll also includes other scenes from Autumn and Winter (Blizzard 2016!!!!).

New-to-me experience: finding a used-up roll of film and not having a clue of what was on it. Rodrigo and I threw ideas back and forth on what the photos could possibly be. We were both wrong.

Dating back all the way to the Autumn of 2014 through New Year’s Day 2015, I was surprised by all the wonderful portraits I took of my friends. This one has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while and I didn’t even know it.
