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.

New menu item: photography

Photography is one of my most loved outlets for my creativity. It’s pretty neat to be able to give others a peek in to how I see things and what catches my eye. It’s like “Here, see the way the light is hitting that leaf? I find it beautiful and maybe you will too”. Or, “Look at how utterly unique that person is”. *CLICK*

I already have a photography blog, but am thinking of taking it down because I’ve recently integrated my photos in to this here site. I figure it makes sense to have it all in the one place. You can have a look for yourself up there in the menu under photography (though I probably didn’t need to tell you that).

I mostly use my Olympus OM2 film camera, but sometimes shoot with a Sony Nex digital. There’s something about film I can’t resist.
