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.

lomo luggage

Remember this old suitcase I picked up on an op-shopping adventure a few months ago? Well, after a bit of head-scratching as to what its purpose would be, I decided that it would make a nice home for my Lomo cameras (as you can see, I’m one of those people that likes to keep everything in their original packaging). I’ve nearly finished the film on my Diana Mini (Byron Bay, random adventures) so I’ll have take a few quick snaps so I can get that developed. I also took my Canon film camera to Oktoberfest, but only got half way through the roll. Hopefully I’ll finish it next weekend, so you can all see pictures of me demolishing a giant pretzel (with the help of my friends of course), drinking out of steins, and looking like a drowned rat after trekking through the rain.

little boats

I wanted to see if I could remember how to make paper boats…

…I had to google the instructions.


More importantly, this is my 500th post.

Let’s celebrate.

By having a paper boat party.

(I don’t actually know what a paper boat party would entail. I’m assuming lots of paper boats).

night lights

These photos came from the same roll of film as my Sunset Sounds photos. It was late at night and I couldn’t get to sleep (too many vodka Red Bulls – never again!) So I decided to try out the “B” setting on my Holga 135BC. I didn’t know how long to keep the shutter open so I just guesstimated. I kept the camera stable by placing it on the floor of the balcony. Lucky it was floor to ceiling glass. You can see the floor in the corner of the second photo. The first photo must be a double exposure. It took me a while to figure that one out. All in all, I’m quite happy with how they turned out. I might try taking night photos more often.
