Turkey on Film

When digital cameras were gaining in popularity I was one of those annoying people saying it would never catch on and we should all shoot film forever. I was wrong and we shouldn’t, but I’ve never really given up on film. I love the look and the old cameras and all that but my main argument has always been the durability of film vs digital media.
Hard drives fail, files transfers introduce corruptions, super popular websites eventually close their doors. I learned a lot about photography in my grandfather’s dark room. He had hundreds of feet of film and 1000s of prints stored there. All perfectly usable.
All this is to say, that on our recent trip to Turkey I brought my trusty 28 year old Canon EOS Rebel G film camera and a zip-lock bag of film.
Halfway through our trip I got the film I’d shot processed and scanned. Here are some of the results!
