camera: Wide Lens Superheadz, film: Lucky black and white film, SHD 100

Photos taken outside of Laurent, a French patisserie in the city. Friends and I had afternoon desserts there yesterday (I had the pear tart, which was sooo good!). The food and decor of the place made me feel like we were actually in a quaint cafe in Paris - or at least that's what I imagine it would be like. If anything, it certainly got us talking excitedly about travelling to Europe one day.

The place is in a small laneway, so there wasn't much light and these photos look a bit dark (although I think the darkness is due to my low ISO film as well). I do like how the bright sunlight that does come through just hits the tables and chairs, highlighting them nicely and creating sharp shadows. Go to Hey Harriet to see more shadow shots today.

I think the dark works - it really makes the highlighted details pop!

I like the darkness as they're really atmospheric and have more of a cool French vibe to them. They look like still shots from a Jean-Luc Goddard film :)

How lovely! I like low ISO films. They always tend to yield surprisingly nice results. I'm excited to start using my roll of b&w film now :)
