Back in 2009, I was lucky to spend a month with my family in the Southern States of the US looking after an Episcopal Church situated in a small town called Pinopolis outside Charleston. We visited places in both Georgia and South Carolina and were given a very warm Southern welcome.

At the time I didn't have my full camera gear with me, but a simple all in one Canon G10, which at the time was a great little pocket travel photography camera. I was recently archiving family photographs I took over the trip and decided to re-edit them but this time with the eye of a travel photographer and using up to date Lightroom editing software.

As the resolution and quality of the photographs was low [ I had shot in jpeg to conserve space on my two cards] I decided with this edit to give the photographs a film look based on Kodak Color Gold. The film stock was a popular general colour film which offered a warm but slightly desaturated colours. I've added some grain to give the photographs that more authentic film look and also deal with noise in the original images.
