A Cruise with Diana and Her Splitzer


Experimenting with a Diana F+, multiple exposures, and a splitzer in a cruise in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea can be very funny! It’s never too late to play a little bit with a pink camera. Just relax and came with me to hear the waves (and the people shouting in the background) in this cruise.

Last summer I went to a cruise through the Mediterranean Sea to spend some time with my mother. I think I was the youngest person in the boat, if we ignore the hundreds of children who where permanently in the swimming pool or in the computer room. I felt a little bit old when I was checking my e-mail and a little boy asked me: “Do we disturb you, Madam?”. I thought: “Oh, my God, I am already a Madam, but not any Madam, a Madam who can be disturbed!”.

However, I had my Diana F+ Pink Edition and my splitzer, a fact that made me feel like a child with a new toy and I was playing a lot! Playing is the word, because I was experimenting with my splitzer and multiple exposures so much that I had no idea about what I was going to find in my roll when I have it developed. I wanted to mix the sea with the boat to be able to show the meaning of being in a cruise with no worries.

When we reached Livorno Port, I went to Pisa and of course I was looking forward to make a picture with the Pisa Tower over my head, simulating a hat, but there was no way.

It was a nice experience and I regret to not having brought more film with me.
