My Melbourne photos from the photoswap with Margrethe from Norway
(LC-Wide with expired Agfa 100)

Oh the joys of a Melbourne spring! Sunny 28 one day, rainy 8 the next... thankfully there is always just enough light to snap up the sights of the city.

I can hardly believe that it is already November, the year has gone so fast & so many things have happened. Next weekend I am spending a long weekend in Sydney, a little mini break is exactly what I need & if I manage to take some photos while I'm there, that's a bonus. (Although I am limiting myself to only taking 3 cameras with me!) I'll also be catching up with a couple of old friends from the UK & Europe that I've not seen in ages... fun times!

Then 3 weeks after that I am back in Sydney for a Blogshop workshop which I'm going to with the spectacular photographer Olivia... we are making a big girls weekend away of it & I just can't wait for cocktails harbourside & learning loads of neat new photoshop skills.

Sometimes you just need a little travel time to clear your head & heart.

Norway photos from the photoswap with Margrethe.

This year I participated in the annual Photoswap run by Rhianne from For The Easily Distracted, which involved swapping film with another film photographer in another part of the world. I was teamed up with the incredibly talented Margrethe from Norway.

Above are a few of the photos from the film that Margrethe sent me from Norway (you can see the remainder of photos from this film here.), but in my next post I will also post the photos from the film I sent to Margrethe.

I just realised today that Margrethe & myself share our birthday, November 18th (however a few years separate us)... what a lovely coincidence!

It was so lovely to be involved in this project & I can't wait to see everyone's photos over on the Flickr group!

New York in Shades of Grey

Here is a small sample of my first self-scanned negatives... I think I have a fair way to go before I perfect my scanning technique. These scans were happy accidents, they are actually cross-processed slide film negatives, but I scanned them in black & white by accident, then I scanned them properly & I still preferred them in shades of grey.

I anyone has any scanning tips, please let me know... especially for scanning longer than usual frames.

Long time no photo!

I know, it's been a long time between photos... I just wanted to reassure my lovely readers that I am in fact still alive, although for the last few weeks I have been buried under a pile of work and university work that I have only just been able to free myself from.

Sadly this also meant that I had to rest my shutter finger a little... somehow I still managed to shoot through a few films (but hardly enough). Luckily for me my holiday to New York City is only 3 short weeks away and many many many a film will be sacrificed in celebration.

Speaking of my NYC trip... if anyone has any tips for photo opportunities or places I should visit, then please let me know. I am also taking a day trip to Washington DC... photos of monuments ahoy!

I also have a new camera that I will be reviewing soon... until then I thought I'd share some of my favorite Lomowalls from over the past few weeks... you can click each one to see a larger version.

My excellent and amazing friends Gus & Lene were in town from Brisbane... 
much fun was had. (LC-A with Lomography 100 film)
