Film Photography From Salzburg

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. For those who chose to live inside their self imposed exile inside their caves, a lot has happened. Especially in New York City. There was the New York Comic Con back in early October. Then right before Halloween, there was that bitch called Sandy. As in Hurricane Sandy. If that wasn’t enough, the US had to deal with its presidential elections. Yup. All that good stuff. Hopefully I’ll get to address each event of my blog, one by one. We’ll see.

In the meantime, I’m going to reminiscence a few months back to April 2012. Back when I won my scholarship to study in Austria for a week. When I traveled to the lovely town of Salzburg, I took my manual film camera. Now although digital is much easier to work with, there’s a certain beauty you can only get with film.

Here’s a few examples.

During the stay at Schloss Leopoldskron for the Salzburg Global Seminar, the students took a day trip to Munich, Germany. A visit to the Dachau concentration camp.

Last day in Salzburg. The students were given a free day to explore the town. Salzburg is known for a few things. The architecture, for example. It ranges from Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical modernism and post-war modernism, as well as Contemporary. Mostly it’s where the story of “The Sound of Music” is based. Also the birthplace of  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Here’s a shot of people just walking through the square.
