Mountains and flowers…

I believe nature is so beautiful. I think that not even one thing created by the hands of man can compare to it. There are a lot of beautiful houses and buildings in this world, but none of them can compare to a mountain or a flower. So here is a collection of mountains and flowers film photos from flickr that I find inspiring:

Hydrangea on film

One of my all time favorite flower is blue and white hydrangea. So, I want to share some beautiful pictures of these flowers. I found the photos mostly on Flickr, but also on a very nice blog – http://julietashley.wordpress.com.
All the photos are on film and I personally believe that the authors of these pictures did a very good job at taking them. Another thing that I like about the photos is the fact that they are very different and the artists managed to capture the beautiful hydrangeas in a personal and creative way.

Looking forward

I love portraits taken with film cameras. I believe it is more difficult to take a good portrait with a film camera, you have to pay attention more carefully to the light, to the distance and everything else. But film portraits are beautiful: the grain, the colors, the unexpected “faults” that the camera leaves on the photo and the fact that you can’t know for sure how the picture will come out.

There is a cathegory of film portraits that I particularly like taking and I enjoy seeing: “back portraits”. They have a feeling of melancholy, mistery, but also familiarity, it is so much more easire to identify with the photo. It’s like looking forward, to what is ahead…I think these kind of portraits are hopeful ones.

Below are some beautiful  “back potraits” taken by some really talented people, whose work I admire.
