Back in the days a few years ago, I wanted to travel with only a film camera, just liked to know what it felt like when your memorial trip photos were totally analog. We had a three- four days stay in Seoul, South Korea. We stayed in a Korean traditional house, kinda home stay in a way as we slept in the owner's house and they also cooked for us. We kinda took it easy as that wasn't our 1st time in Seoul, so we just wanted to walk around, go sauna, catch up with some friends, basically no more tourist spots and all night shopping in Dongdaemun. I had my Leica M6 (classic) and Summicron 50/2 with me along with a few rolls of multi-brand expired film. It actually felt pretty good when I had to carefully compose my shot and give it a thought rather than firing series of shots and pick the best one later at home. People also didn't get intimidated by the look of the camera. I was a little insecure since I couldn't see the result right away (I was pretty new to film camera back then), did I load the film? What if it wasn't loaded properly? Anyway, after finishing up the first roll, it sort of gave me some confidence that I could manage this. Once we returned and got the films developed, I was quite satisfied with the pictures, although there were some blurry moments. This is a magic of film photography as things aren't always perfect. Analog is the future! Image
