I started to notice a pattern in my film photographs from this last trip to Isla Mujeres. There were two times a day when the photos were completely saturated in a blue hue. Sunset and around 10am in the morning.
I remember taking the photo above after I set down my towel and beach bag on the bed I would retreat to, after a swim in the beautiful turquoise sea.
I must have taken this one afterward because this is the view to the left.
And the view to the right.
Yeah, no wonder I just want to go back! There is this beautiful blue magic hour on Playa Norte in the morning.
It was even strong near El Centro.
The sunset was magical too.
I used 100 speed cross process film for this set. The images always come out with super saturated colors when I use this particular film – which is why I love it.
I have to be careful using it in low light without a flash. It usually doesn’t turn out well unless I’m using an LC-A+.
May your journey be your muse,
