Fête des Tuileries, Paris


One of the unsung heroes in travel photography is the film used. During my last trip to Fête des Tuileries on Rue de Rivoli, central Paris, I was able to use Fujufilm Velvia 50 and the results blew me away! Check out the photos after the jump.

I’ve found that I always take my best Lomo photos when i feel like a kid again, and fairgrounds bring that out of me in every sense; the colours, the noises, the lights. Quite simply, fairs are a dream for Lomographers far and wide! Take this scene and coat it in a Fujufilm Velvia 50 lacquer and you’ve got a winner on your hands! This was my first time using this film, and the results of cross processing it absolutely blew my mind!! I don’t think I need to say any more.. the photos say more than I can try to! However, I hope they inspire somebody to rush out and do the same.

    Oh yes these are really great photographs. I like them all, the hotdog is so funny and I like the rocket stream shooting off the farris wheel.
