summer 2020 on film
my first experience with a film camera and the first summer I shot on film. I was extremely happy when I received developed photos, despite the fact that many photos didn’t turn out due to inexperience. it is the film that conveys all the magic of that very moment, capturing it forever. usually when i decide to do something on a regular basis something is bound to go wrong, but this time i really managed to do this small project and collect many many wonderful moments of this summer, i couldn’t wait and already shared them with you on instagram, but I also really want to leave them here and add some descriptions 🙂
this summer was probably the most spontaneous in terms of travel, since we had absolutely nothing planned. when the borders inside Europe were opened, we decided to take a little trip and drove to Italy, where we spent a couple of days camping in the small seaside town of Grado.
all summer I was actively looking for a job and planning to move to Berlin, so it was hard to relax and enjoy the summer one hundred percent and there was a constant feeling of anxiety, nevertheless we had a good time during the summer in Vienna with our friends. during these moments I forgot about all the problems and was just enjoying the moment to the fullest. we weren’t sad because of not having a proper vacation, because in the summer the city really changed and there were so many options to spend a good time: go to the river in the city or to one the lakes, cool off with a delicious drink on one of many terraces or go to the mountains.
on one of the summer weekends, Thomas and I went by car to Croatia, to one of the most beautiful cities located on the Istrian peninsula – Rovinj. it’s only about five and a half hours away by car, so we left on Thursday afternoon and returned by Sunday evening and spent two wonderful days there by the sea. on Sunday, unfortunately, it was overcast, so we spent the morning walking around the small cozy village of Motovun, famous for its truffles, and from there we drove home to Vienna.
this year, for obvious reasons, the parade had to be canceled, but still they allowed a small procession of cars and people, including us, came to watch it. it was great to see people who came to celebrate the love and freedom that was in the air of this hot summer day.
at the end of July we went to South Tyrol, where we spent the weekend at the beautiful villa Arnika. I talk more about our experience here.
