These were taken a fairly long time ago, back when furniture store Retro Colony was still located at this dreamy, light-abundant space off Nemesu Ave. I usually hesitate to use black and white film because I really hate the idea of compromising colour, but I am so glad I popped one into my camera that day. The light streaming in really helped to accentuate the details of the photographed.
I never thought I would visit Rwanda in my lifetime. Not even close. I wasn’t even counting on visiting Africa anytime soon. But when the opportunity presented itself last August, I had to take it. I am so glad to have stepped foot on its soil, and for the remaining roll of black and white Ilford film in the camera that I brought there.
9 posts planned for this beautiful country, including this one.
Some of the film got scratched, and there was only so much I could do to salvage it with editing tools.
