Bits of Provence

Spent a few days in Provence the past weekend. Had a few cameras with me but the one I used the most was my phones camera. I must say I'm pretty pleased with the result. It felt just like in the #iphoneonly days.

Fog encounters

Each morning I drive to work passing some great imagery. I always catch the sunrise through the fog and never captured it on camera. Til today.

Escape to Frankfurt

Guess what? You can take the train from Paris and be in Frankfurt in 3 hours and 30 minutes. And if you buy the tickets early you can get great prices. That's what I did back in mid-November.

Did my research before heading there, looked up speciality coffee places in town, great hotels and good photo spots. And I was not dissapointed. Frankfurt is the city of architecture, a mix between the old and the new. Skyscrapers and classic buildings blend in so well. In some corners of the city you can sense some strong New York city vibes.

We stayed at the great 25hours Hotel by Levi's - a Levi's themed hotel of the 25hours brand. I knew of this hotel chain from back when I visited Hamburg and Levi's is one of my favourite clothing brands so the choice was obvious. The location of the hotel is excellent, just a few meters away from the central train station.

Coffee wise we repeated at a great place called "The Holy Cross Brewing Society". Great and cosy little coffeeshop that makes some delicious flatwhites.

Just like in France, Frankfurt was deserted on Sunday. It was a short visit that left me wanting to come back during summer. 

Prague in summer

It was my third time in Prague but the first time I visited the city during summer. I wanted to see how it feels to experience this city without having to worry about the cold. And I found my answer. I found out I preffer the bohemian capital in the cold season. This city shines brighter on a cold gray day. Low temperatures wipe big crowds off the street, so you don't have to deal with the drunk people lured to Prague by the cheap beer. 

I had my Hasselblad with me to capture Prague on Kodak Portra 400. These are the results, carefully scanned by Carmencita Film Lab in Valencia.
