A week ago we were in the mountains, in deep blankets of snow, hurtling down the pistes of the French Alps. I had all the intentions of blogging pictures from the trip once we got back, but whaddyaknow, time was not on my side... So, I wish you all a festive and relaxing time whatever you're doing over the next week or so, and as Arnie would say: "I'll be back!"
new old camera a few weeks ago; an Olympus XA2 to be precise. Charlyn had one with her when I met up with her, and I was intrigued by it, so I had nosey around eBay and picked one up for next to nothing. It's very similar to the Lomo LC-A, and I really enjoyed shooting with it, but it leaves me slightly confused... When the focus is right it's quite a bit sharper than the LC-A, but I prefer the vignetting you get with the Lomo. Anyway, I've decided that I'm going to alternate rolls between the two from now on and see how it goes. Oh, and how's about that giant cupcake in the last pic?! Lemme tell you... it was goooood! More XA2 shots to come.
Instagramming all the time, is that I get a lot of doubles. Why I still feel that I have to back my film shots on something digital is a mystery. Anyway, here are the last ones from the my most recent Lomo LC-A roll. Have a great weekend folks!
the London Aquarium. It was a freezing cold and foggy November day (which I loved - as the Swedes say: "There's no bad weather, only bad clothes"), so it was quite a contrast to be wandering around there, looking at sharks and giant sea turtles. Oomoo loved it and we carried on for a bite to eat before heading home and opening pressies; amongst them a book from his favourite author/illustrator - yay! Man, I can't believe he's two already... can whoever's holding down the fast forward button please stop it??!!
one of my favourite songs ever - hence the title of this post. Happy Friday y'all!
St. ALi (where I had the best French Toast EVER) and then walked over to Tate Modern to see the Gerard Richter exhibition (which none of us particularly liked - oh well!). Aaaanyway, I'm hoping that I'll have more time to post more here next week; I still haven't managed to make/find another me :)
Charlyn who was in town visiting from Canada. We'd never met before but we, haha, "clicked" instantly. We spent a couple of days together and wandered around Tate Modern and checked out the new Turbine Hall installation amongst other things, had baked goodies at Nordic Bakery, checked out the Hunterian Museum (which Charlyn actually took me to and where sadly no photography was allowed) and the Power of Making exhibition at the V&A (ditto). Oh, and see that Kånken backpack that Charlyn carries? She had four cameras in there. Respect!
