24 Frames of Film: La Tienda de Doña Gavi

Rudy Giron: 24 frames of film May 2015 &emdash;

We continue the series “Pase Adelante” of 24 frames of film with the iconic store La Tienda de Doña Gavi. This tiny tiendita offering a million things is quite dark and lit with dim lights and candles, that’s why you see a lot grain from the ASA 400 film. If you have not visited La Tienda de Doña Gavi make sure you put it on your list for the next trip. Here you can enjoy the world-famous vegetable ice creams such as avocado, beet, corn, camote, etc.

By the way, my theme for the 24 frames of film in May was entitled “Pase adelante” or “Come in” which is what vendors would say as you enter their business. I tried to show all kinds of business as seen from the doorway. About half the roll is from tiny business found in the villages around Antigua Guatemala while the rest of the roll was captured on the more affluent shops in downtown Antigua Guatemala.

Thanks to loyal reader, José de Ruiz, soon we will have two rolls of black and white film for new analog photography projects. If you like to contribute with a couple of rolls of black and white chromogenic film, follow the instructions below.
