It would be great to have more days like this one, perfect weather, gorgeous location and daylight savings. I'm already planning my next trip to this wonderful place with lots more film and a picnic lunch (and better footwear conducive to climbing beach cliffs). Can't wait! I took these shots with my SLR 680 camera and some of my last reserves of expired 600 film.

Beams of light

When I'm at work, I'm constantly with people and being a bit of an introverted person, I find this quite draining. I try to spend my spare time in nature because there is something cathartic about its sounds and smells. The best thing though are the views that are always changing and no matter where I go, I can usually find something different to see. This shot was taken with my SLR 680 camera and the new (and very beautiful) PX 680 colour protection film.

You are here

Back at work, using the analytical side of the brain again but wishing instead that I could spend my days here or roaming the countryside. Things go in cycles and it's good doing a bit of everything. There is nothing better though, than going somewhere beautiful and just sit quietly to absorb nature.

Model, mentor, muse

My sweet friend Esther came to stay with me this week so I could mentor her with her Polaroid photography. She has picked up the basics very quickly and took some great shots - I'm really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with in the future. It was also a wonderful opportunity for me to go back and revisit some basics and to get outside again and do some snapping. Esther also made a very patient and willing model as well and even inspired me to get up early and capture some of the amazing light our coastline has to offer. I took this shot with Esther's camera using Impossible film.
