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!!!!).
Sad but true: this one roll of black and white film spans from February through October 2015.
One of my goals this past trip in Peru was to take a lot of photos on film. When I usually get my film developed, I go through photographer’s remorse when I realize how little I’ve captured. Unfortunately, this still happened during my most recent trip in early October. I swear I took more photos, but I guess it all ended up in my iPhone instead.
Part two of Peru is coming up… as soon as I finish my roll of film.

Another post where I admit that I am terrible at posting photos. It is nearing a year since I traveled to Peru and it’s about time that I post the photos that I took.
This is where I also admit that I am a horrible tourist – especially when I only bring a film camera. I’m really hesitant to take pictures when it’s on film because it’s so expensive to buy film and develop. Every picture counts. So of course, when I got all my pictures developed, I realized how little I had taken while I was there. Oops. Granted, I took a lot more pictures on my phone, but the quality isn’t nearly as lovely. 🙁
The photos below span most of the duration I spent in Peru, which is roughly two weeks. I spent the majority of the time in Lima, but I only have two photos to show for on this post. We spent a few days traveling up north in the mountains in Cajamarca, and then back down to the coast in Trujillo.
Next time I travel, I really need to take more photos.
