Today, we’re featuring a travel series that spans three beautiful countries. Photography Brittany Kelley captured the architecture, rich colors, and culture of Mexico, Belize, and Honduras. Here are a few words from Brittany about her experience…

Before this trip, I had never been out of the country. I have been itching to take a trip outside the United States since I was a child. My husband and I traveled, by ship, to Mexico, Belize, and Honduras.

I usually take my DSLR when I go shooting, but I decided to shoot with ONLY film on this trip. I have a bit of an obsession with shooting film, and this trip allowed me to bask in that obsession.

We stopped in Mexico first, Belize the next day, and Honduras last (but certainly not least). I am fascinated by other countries and cultures, and I am always eager to learn more about what makes a country unique and alluring. I am fascinated by the brilliant street photography work of artist Vivian Maier. Through my studies of her life and work, I have adopted a great love for the art of street photography. I took the opportunity to act on my fascination with street photography while on this trip. I shot many photographs of the people, the architecture and the sights that greatly differ from those in rural Oklahoma, where I grew up. Now that I finally have a passport, this certainly won’t be my last trip outside the country.

Analog cameras and films used: Canon z135 (Find at KEH Camera or on eBay) | Kodak Ektar 100 (Find on Amazon)
