Amsterdam Part 6

June 20, 2018

Hi, Amsterdam! This is the view from our friend Malin’s office, she works for Marcel Wanders.

We went to design university together in Gothenburg and hadn’t seen each other since 2010. Malin is one of those friends, you know, who you don’t have to be in touch with for years, and still feel close to. Hope we see each other again sooner than in 2026.

Not as many buildings this high in the city center, beautiful view.

Malin, where do you recommend us to have lunch? La Perla she answered, so we went there to have a Salsiccia fresca to go, because the sun just came out and it was time to hang out by one of the canals.

Beautiful place.

The pizza was A M A Z I N G.
I brought Kodak Gold 200 film and I think it’s time to try the Kodak Portra 400, I never tried it and it doesn’t seem as yellow. Yellow is good, but this is a bit too much, right? Guess it’s a question of taste. Do you shoot film? What’s your favourite?

    These photos are beautiful and very cinematic. The soft focus is great. I think light in Amsterdam makes everything a little bit more yellow. My analog photos had very similiar colours. I really like Kodak Ultramax 400, it’s more reddish.

    Kodak has always seemed biased towards yellow, the infamous sunny day. Long long ago, when I worked in photo labs catering to advertising, Kodak had a good balance in studio situations for everything except meat; it always came out gross and unpleasantly saturated. We used Fuji for that.
    I don’t know where to get film properly processed here (US), and I doubt I could afford it, and my dear Olympus has the dead metering system that they’re known for, so I really don’t know about today.

      Yeah, I go to the cheap drugstore on my street to develop my films, so probably that has something to do with the quality as well. I used Fuji film all the time when I lived in Sweden and had a great photo store who developed my films, was always happy with the result. Thanks for your comment, Kirsten! x

    My favourite has always been fuji, mostly superia (velvia as it comes to diapositives). It seems to have more realistic colour resemblance than kodak.

      I always used the superia back in the days, should get my hands on some rolls again soon 🙂 Thanks for reminding me!
