Sharing a Reel with Karen

An analogue pursuit shared by two people cut the distance between La Palma in the Canary Islands and Barcelona in Spain.

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve known Karen through Flickr. One day I discovered her wonderful photographs, the many different reels she used and the astonishing colors these produced.

Following her Flickr was all for entertainment.

But on another day, I was just jumping from Flickr to Flickr until I ended up viewing some incredible pictures of the MACBA in Barcelona, which, curiously, were hers.

I knew that she lived in the Canary Islands and I noticed that the photos were of Barcelona, so I had to ask.

Soon we decided to share a reel.

She wandered through the beautiful places hidden in the island of La Palma while I walked through my favorite places in Barcelona, both of us snapping photos along the way.

The experiment was a success. I can only tell Karen that it was a pleasure.

    How does film swap work? did you tell each other what pictures you took for each frame or did you just do you own thing? your pictures perfectly with the Karen's.
