a week in photographs I.

when shooting a film roll I usually tend to finish it in one or two days. this time though I wanted to capture a whole week through 12 shots of my Hasselblad: it was hard to take no more than two photographs per day but when I finally got the roll developed I recalled every moment I decided to take each of them.
a week in photographs part one - in no particular order:

Hasselblad 500 C/M - Kodak Ektar 100
it had been a very warm week: the flowers started to bloom everywhere and the grass became suddenly green. strolling around the neighborhood I had noticed many people hanging around my favourite spots: even the botanic garden had become more crowded - I didn't complain though as it was finally possible to sit outside and read a book. I am so glad the swan didn't move when I was taking that photograph.
to be continued!

      that swan was definitely still long enough for me to take the shot, which I was grateful about!
