Nervi on Film
In April 2023, we spent a week in Italy along the Ligurian coast. We flew into Milan, and then took a train to Genoa. At Genoa, we transferred to a suburban train and ended our journey in Nervi, just outside of Genoa. I had spotted Nervi when looking through Google Maps, and it looked like a pleasant place to spend the night. After arriving, I took a walk through town with my Nikon FG, a 1980s 35mm film camera. I like to use this camera for daytime street photography.
A path led from the train station along the coast, providing a beautiful view of the town:
Along the water, people were enjoying the sunshine:
Walking through town, I photographed these flowers and shoppers outside of a store:
I liked the way the light was hitting this entrance with a stylish house number and hanging plant:
This Focacceria was located down the street from our hotel, near the train station. It was incredibly popular with long lines at all hours:
I also walked past a floral shop that had lots of flowers on display as well as hanging baskets:
I’m fond of the colors and vintage look produced by this camera when paired with Kodak film. I’ll be sharing more film (and digital!) photos from my trip in upcoming posts.
These are awesome shots, Peter! Love the golden light in these. Great shot of the line at the focacceria- such a fun cultural commentary. 🙂
Thank you !!!!
