Victoria's Light

The festival in the village of Villa Franca starts on Friday night and is a grand celebration centered around the church.  It ends to a great crescendo at midnight on Wednesday night with an impressive fireworks display.  On the hour from around 9 a.m. each day until midnight the church bells ring and fireworks explode.  Street vendors sell food and toys for the children and each night there is a band playing in the central square where a small cafe sells ice cream, espresso and adult drinks.  The entire village gathers for the celebration.  It was a wonderful experience for our family.  I am told this tradition dates back to the 1400’s.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
