City of Liberty: New York City Street Scenes Shot on Colour Film

December 13, 2019

In July 2019 my friend Sammy Younan and I went to New York for a week of adventures. Naturally I took both digital and film cameras.

Self-portrait in The Jane Hotel (shot with my Nikon D750 camera).

 

In this post I share some of my favourite New York City street scenes shot on colour film - primarily from three rolls of Kodak Ektar 100 colour film that I shot while there this past summer.

So let's get started...

Believe. A mural on the Houston Bowery Wall by the artist known as Queen Andrea.

"I am deliberate and afraid of nothing." - Audre Lorde.

As seen through the window of the Word Bookstore in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

I'd like to end with a final image shot on Revolog Kolor film. It's a leftover frame from the roll I shot in Coney Island.

It isn't Kodak Ektar 100, like the others in this post, but the words in the below scene seem to fit with other images in this blog.

Don't Be Afraid of Anyone

 

Thanks for looking!
