First film photos since moving to Melbourne

I moved here a couple of months back and have only just taken myself on a proper photo mission around the suburbs of this glorious city. Yeah, the weather has been a bit rubbish. But supposedly bad weather is what gives a city its soul. It means more indoor activities and moody art. The photos from this day however were of sunny skies and (not that you can see it) warm floaty scents of the beginnings of spring. Unfortunately the colour and lighting is a bit off with most of the photos from this set as I only had my hands on 400 speed film. Who cares though, I had fun. Scanning in the negatives last night was part of the fun. A process I’ve missed.

First film photos in nearly a year

Grief can do funny things. Once you’ve had time doing almost nothing (what is time?) you start to get back in to the things you used to enjoy. For some reason, it took me extra time to pick up my Olympus film camera. The first few photos felt so clumsy, but it didn’t take long until its familiarity and warmth laid weightily in my hands.

Here are a couple I took in a paddock near my friends property. I always feel like I enter some kind of dream state when walking around there.
