sail away


You may have noticed that all my latest supersampler photos look a bit scratchy. The white specks are actually bits of dust. I scanned them in during the day of an epic dust storm, so dust was finding its way onto everything. And now I’m too lazy to re-scan them. Oh well. The first photo is from an expedition to the bayside and the last two are from one morning when a hot air balloon flew over our house. We get a lot of hot-air balloons coming over our house in the mornings during Autumn/Winter (or whenever hot-air ballooning season is) because they land in the park a few blocks away.

I went to get my Holga film developed the other day. Only I took the wrong film. Instead I ended up getting an old Supersampler film developed, which was a nice surprise. I initially thought that the film was ruined, because I was having issues removing it from the camera, and then accidentally opened the back while the film was still in. Anyway, it turns out only a few of the photos were damaged. So be prepared for an onlsaught of Supersampler photos. I still have to get my Holga flm developed, but might just leave it for when I get my Diana film developed too (I have to finish the roll I have in now + the roll I’m taking to Parklife). So there will be a surplus of Lomo photos over the next couple of weeks. Hope you all enjoy!

(Jamie T last night was fantastic. Crowd was so energetic and the atmosphere was insane. Sometimes gigs are a bit lame when everyone just stands there with their arms folded, but last night everyone was dancing and it was just a good gig to be at. That said, the end of the night was a bit of a downer when a guy jumped on stage, dived off to avoid security, and in the process knocked two girls down to the ground. One of them looked like she hit her head on the ground pretty badly and might have had a concussion. I hope she’s alright. But the jerk of a guy just got up, walked off and didn’t even acknowledge them or say sorry. People like that make me angry. I don’t care if you do something stupid and hurt yourself, but when you ruin someone else’s night then that’s just not cool. Anyway, will end my rant there. Bar the last five minutes, it was still a top gig!)

happy bow day

So what do I do when I have another assignment due soon? Look at the collections showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, of course. The girly-girl in me is quite enamoured with Erin Fetherston’s Spring 2009 collection entitled East of the Sun and West of the Moon. I think it must be the pastels (I’m almost certain that my recent fascination with pastels is a response to wearing too much black and grey this winter). And also maybe due to the fact that the collection reminds me of fairy-floss, rainbow ice-cream, marshmallows, and sugar-and-spice-and-all-things-nice.
