Finders Keepers - mushroom art

As promised, here are a few photos from my birthday/Finders Keepers Markets. These were taken on a Polaroid disposable camera. The film expired in 2008. Despite this, I think the photos turned out quite well, with the only faults a result of photographer error or poor lighting (my bad). I have to say that these photos have a certain lomo quality to them and the results are similar to, if not better than, my Holga 135BC camera.

Finders Keepers - birthday cupcakes

(1) Installation art at the Finders Keepers markets. They’re crocheted toadstools. Nifty.
(2) View of the top of the Old Museum in Brisbane, where the markets were held.
(3) Secret garden adventures.
(4) Birthday cupcakes! Yum!

You can see more photos from the day on my Flickr.

    looks like a fun day! these photos turned out pretty cool, I love it when expired film turns out even better than regular film. (and on a disposable camera too! awesome.)

    Awesome photos, I think the expiration of the film is what makes it so much better! And you took the words out of my mouth, it definitely gives it a lomo aesthetic to it. Looks like so much fun!
