Taylor Gleason from California had never been to any other country except for Mexico. But this changed after he went on a school trip to Italy. He got infatuated with travelling and ever since has been to 65 countries, 50 of which he visited in just 2 years. Taylor’s Instagram account with the photos he’s been sharing from different countries already has over 64,000 followers. “I”ve always been one of those people that just needs to be constantly doing something, being active, and being an explorer. I like writing my own narrative and going wherever life wants to take me,” Gleason said.
It is a shame when old cameras are slowly gathering dust. They need to be used. So I took my dad’s old camera and went on a hike. Sadly, developing film is pretty expensive, so I improvised and took the photos through the viewfinder with a digital camera (but to be honest, in the end I bought some film to try real analog photography). The camera is a “Elbaflex VX 1000”. Here are some of my favorite photos.
