Daydream in blue (Kraków, part 4)
December 1, 2015 § 3 Comments
So much has been written about Kraków’s fairy-tale beauty, and about how the Old Town, particularly the Rynek, resembles a stage set. But if you visit at the height of tourist season, it’s hard to photograph, much less walk around, without bumping into crowds.
There’s a simple solution – take advantage of the long August days and get up with the sunrise. This is the roll I shot early in the morning of my last day in Kraków, on and around the Rynek, before the city was fully awake. I was experimenting with a new film – Lomochrome Turquoise, to be precise. I had no idea what colour effects would come into play, but let’s just say this is probably not the last time I’ll use it… it turned out to be perfect for capturing the silence and emptiness and delicate melancholy of Kraków in the early hours.
