During my trip to Poland in July, I finally visited the Trójmiasto or three cities on the Baltic coast. Gdynia, Sopot and Gdańsk have an interesting and varied history and I could have spent a lot longer exploring were it not for the baking heat.

Before we start, I thought you might be interested in this. It’s a piece on why the results that we enjoy from film are not the same as shooting digital and then adding effects. It’s one of the best explanations of a subject that I’ve always found difficult to pin down. See what you think:
Another roll shot on our trip to Poland last month. This time it’s Kodak Portra 400, that I accidentally shot at 200, resulting in what looks to me like slightly more colour than usual. Continue reading →
