mexico city, through the eyes of my diana mini

last month david, my family and I traveled to mexico city. i only took two 35mm film cameras: my diana mini and my canon sureshot telemax. i always go to mexico city because i love it so much, so i feel i am always taking the same photos over and over with my phone or camera. i wanted to change it up a little bit. i was really excited to develop my film because i swore i got good shots. the scenery looked promising at the time I took the photos. however, when i got my prints back, i wasn’t too amazed by them. i hadn’t used my diana mini in a long time that i had forgotten things about it. also, because i was being cheap and wanted to save $2 on film, i decided to purchase 200ISO film. bad idea. diana mini works best with 400 and 800. i guess this served as a lesson!

i’m not in love with the photos, but after seeing them again, I’m starting to like them. they bring back good memories – and that’s really important to me. hence why i’m sharing them and why i have this blog: for memories.

this was david’s first time traveling with my family. i am so glad we got the chance to do it because he got to know my uncle’s family and how my family is outside the typical “hello/how are you/goodbye” scenarios when he comes to my home. we went to the city specifically to take my devout grandmother to the basilica because she wanted to pray and thank the virgin for everything she did and is doing for us. it was her first time on plane, so yay abuela!

p.s: this is my first time uploading photos to my blog from flickr. not sure how i feel about it.. probably won’t be doing that again.

i took these with my canon sure shot telemax. i think it was my first time taking her out for a ride, so sorry if these shots aren’t perfect. i still liked them though :) i love my friends.
