film photos: prehistoric/futuristic

Urban Dino
Shapes on Shapes on Shapes
Ok, so the first photo may not date back to the prehistoric ages, but it sure does feel like it. I’ve had a roll of film sitting in my Holga camera for over a year and only just got around to finishing it the other week. It had reached the point where I’d forgotten what I’d shot so there was a bit of mystery surrounding it. Most of the roll was of friends and parties but there were a few random shots thrown in as well. Bris-pals may recognise the dinosaur from the museum (childhood throwback, anyone?) and the sculpture from being outside the state library. I must have snapped them while walking around the cultural precinct one day.

    I love me some film! Lomo sucked me in with their 10 free piggies and I bought more film… Just finished a roll of 120 Diana and need to get it developed too!

    I used to play on those dinosaurs very time we walked past them when I was little!

      Definitely a blast from the past. I also like to think of it as a film documenting hairstyles throughout the year. Will check out your giveaway too!

    I used to love that dinosaur, although my personal favourite is the humpback whale. And that massive Redback inside is just freaky.

      When I was REALLY little I'd always ask my parents if the whale was real hahaha. Those whale noises tricked me!

    I have two films that have been sitting here for over 6 months that I too have forgotten what is on them.
