These are some shots taken during a recent holiday in Colombia. My wife and I stayed in Cartagena del la Indias to attend the wedding of a friend.

Cartagena is a colonial gem and grew wealthy from being the principal jumping off point for Spanish convoys taking gold and silver to Spain. This wealth also attracted the attention of privateers most famous of which was that great English sailor, Sir Francis Drake, who paid the city a visit much to the consternation of the locals (and my great amusement some 400 years later!)

The three are amongst my favourites though. They were all taken with my Holga loaded with my favourite colour print film, Kodak Portra 160NC.
