My name is Ryan & I’m a cameraholic. My wife made it apparent to me that as this was our honeymoon & not a photo holiday I shouldn’t be taking a huge DSLR. Of course me being the gentleman & the scholar that I am didn’t take a single camera… I took 3 instead 😉

Following on from Ryan Learoyd’s 35 Trips trip to Bali from his honeymoon, he also sent through some gorgeous colour photos taken on his trusty Nikon FM2.

All of these were shot on Agfa Precisia and cross processed. A brilliant set of photos to go alongside his black & white shots from the 35 Trips post.

We arrived in Sanur at the heart of Balinese celebrations. Galungan is a Balanese Hindu festival where its people celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Streets were filled with decorations & offerings.

I’d like to think that my love of photography evolved from winning a Blue Peter badge for an environmental image I took on a disposable camera when I was 6 years old. Only later in life I realised my dad actually took that picture & I have been trying to redeem myself ever since.

Of course I’m coming home with a wife & the love of my life & in that our adventure has only just begun. I made a promise as a husband to stay true to my word & on our next trip I won’t be taking a single camera…

I’ll probably take 4 instead 😉
