Cartegena Travel Photography, Colombia captured on Film
Each winter, we always dig around the internet for flight deals and flight sales to get out of dodge. I love Chicago, but holy cow- does it get cold and windy in the winter! Seriously, this city isn’t for the faint of heart. Especially the people who live and work by the lakefront in the winter.
Jason and I found a sale flight to Cartagena, Colombia for a couple of days. So we skipped the cold and embarked on the quest to capture some Cartegena Travel Photography. This city was amazingly beautiful. we spent most of our time within the city walls of this old port town. All of the people were so incredibly friendly in Cartegena! Jason also found the location of each and every Juan Valdez coffee shop in the vicinity to enforce his lifelong quest of caffeination.
The city is vibrant and colorful- and you are allowed to walk around on the old fort walls. The musicians and nightlife in Cartegena was also amazing- from street performers to musicians at the cafes.
When we travel, we try to shoot mainly film. This was our first trip where we didn’t even bring our digital cameras with us. We always shoot film while abroad. Film is timeless with a dreamy grain.
