Palma de Mallorca in mono­chrome

Published Categorised as Photography, Spain, Travel No Comments on Palma de Mallorca in mono­chrome


Here’s some black and white photos I took in Palma de Mallorca in the summer, and developed the other day. There’s no real reas­on for me to return there. I had one lovely trip there, and one horrible one, so that balances out. I can’t say much for the qual­ity of the company, but Mallorca is a beau­ti­ful place (minus Magaluf of course). I took these on Ilford HP5 with my Pentax ME Super (my favour­ite camera). I also had a roll of 50s style Efke film, but some­thing happened to it, either mois­ture or humid­ity. When I opened it in the dark bag and tried to load it onto the reel, the cart­ridge was all full of goo, and the emul­sion came off in a big clammy mess onto my hands. The film was unload­able, and unres­cu­able, so I’ll never know what was on it.



This art gallery in an old church near the cathed­ral was great, the build­ing had wonder­ful atmo­sphere.


The floor had people’s faces prin­ted on, to create a discon­cert­ing effect when you walked on them.

The strange sunken palm-lined river/​canal is one of the things I like best about Palma. There’s some­thing eerie about it.
