the snapped roll

During our road trip through Montenegro I managed to snap a roll inside the camera?! I obviously felt like crying, but luckily I didn't panic and, in a pitch black cabin in Biogradska Gora National Park, took out the film and rolled it up inside the film roll container. I kept the container in my makeup bag during the trip and just hoped that it would be dark enough. When I got back to Edinburgh I locked my self up in our bathroom with the light switched off, took out the film container and duct taped it to keep the light out. I really didn't think it would be enough to save any of the photos, and neither did the photo people in Boots, but LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY TURNED OUT: 

These are taken on the road between Kolašin and Morača Monastery, early one morning when we woke up next to this amazing bridge with a little farm at the other end. I love, love the light leaks from the perforation. 




And Morača Monastery, where an Orthodox priest told me that I look like Sinéad O'Connor. 


Cetinje is the Old Royal Capital of Montenegro and is such an amazing little pretend place. I mean, look at those houses? And that monastery?? And the mountain backdrop?? We never wanted to leave.

On the road between Podgorica and Kolašin, we saw the most beautiful sunset and had to stop every 500m to take photos of the majestic mountains that skirted the road. 

And finally, Budva in the setting sun.
