France on Film: Paris

Film photography is one of our favorite hobbies – we both prefer the look and feel of film over digital.  There’s something special, more real, and in-the-moment about film that digital just doesn’t capture.  We lugged around a Pentax MX 35mm SLR film camera during our 3 week adventure through France and snapped away 5 rolls, in addition to hundreds of digital photos.  Since most of our blog posts were written on the road and we didn’t have our film developed until after we were home, I wanted to share them separately.  Here are our favorite shots from our first 4 days spent in Paris in June, 2012.
