When I couldn’t buy any rolls of films in our Singapore airport, I was flustered, I panicked. Then how? Will I be able to get films in Switzerland? Are we going to bump into a photographic gadgets shop upon our arrival? I really want to feature Switzerland in pixels and grains, I wanted it so badly. It was a country where I wasn’t even sure if I’d be back again (the uncertainty of ‘will I get into Lausanne Hotel School aka EHL?’ was definitely in my mind more than half of the time).
And yes I managed to.. on my 2nd or 3rd day. Boy, was I more than relieved. I was recommended the ISO 200 since Switzerland had its enormous sun shining above our heads. Well, I heeded the advice of the staff and here we have 6 rolls of ISO 200 films ready to go!
4 rolls of films – a mixture of Zurich, Interlaken, Zermatt, Bern, Gruyere, Lucerne, Lausanne, Evian Les Bains.
Expect a lot of waters, mountains, snow and greenery.
This is one of my favourite photos. I have never been able to take photos indoors because I’ve been using ISO 400 which has proven it will be rather dark. When the sunlight shone in, I took the chance to snap this photo and phew, I’m glad it turned out beautiful.
And when I saw a fellow tourist in our group snapping through the coach windows with her disposable camera, I was itching to do so too. I’ve never done so before. But I did a few times and they all turned out well, though you can see the reflections at certain parts of the photo – now that’s the point to remember I snapped it through the windows!
I didn’t hesitate to take this photo because I was certain it’d look exactly like this. And thankfully it did.
Took this up in the mountains where it was snowing! My first interaction with snowflakes falling on my head! My hands were frozen, I was even afraid I’d spoil the camera if I kept snapping away in this freezing weather.
What’s Switzerland without the moo moos?
And as I’m here, I’m only at my 84th photo out of the 130 I have.
The mountains, the waters, the greenery, the swiss houses. I think this photo could well represent: Switzerland!
The well-known Lion Monument. It was raining but I really loved this and its story so I snapped it. Now ISO 200, you could do a lot better than I expected! Thank you for that.
Looking at this bridge, we know it’s Lucerne. They had their flea markets which I snapped a few photos here and there while I roamed around.
Back to Lausanne.
Evians les Bains in France.
And I ended off my film adventure in Swiss with the hotel view I was blessed with, in addition, we have the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen.
Now that I’ve entered EHL, I know, you know we’ll get to see a bit more of Switzerland in pixels and grains! Say woohoo for that! Perhaps I’d get to share more in time to come!
