Winter Road Trip

I know, it's been ages since I last posted so moving right along...
Marcelo and I have recently returned from our winter road trip to Dubbo as he has work there - I get to tag along and frolic in the countryside. I do love getting away to clear my head from the more mundane aspects of daily life. Anyway, it was snowing in some parts. Yes I did say SNOWING. It was cold enough in Dubbo and surrounds but on our way back home it snowed as we drove through Orange, Bathurst and parts of the Blue Mountains. I already know I don't fare well in cold temperatures but being in snow is a whole different ballgame. I got some interesting photos, but I realised a few things, the cold makes you shake and I didn't have a tripod - or warm enough clothing. I also had some not so great film. Anyway...all of these were taken with my trusty Polaroid 180 camera and some expired (in 2000) 669 film.

Upcoming Exhibition & Birthday Cake

Three of my photos have been chosen for the upcoming "Polaroid Resurrection" exhibition at Film Never Die in Melbourne next month. If you are in the Melbourne area during Easter weekend, opening night is April 3rd and the exhibition runs until the 22nd. Exciting!

On another note, my adorable Marcelo surprised me for my birthday with this beautiful Polaroid themed cake. It was made by his cousin Ossie Perez, who is extremely talented. Not only was the cake delicious, but it was all edible (even the little photos). 
Cute much?

Hello 2015

Sorry dear blog...I've been away. Kind of.
I'm still snapping of course and trying new things. One of my more recent endeavours with film includes the overlay of these two photos which is basically a Polaroid 669 with a Spectra transparency peel over the top. 

Cameras - Polaroid 180 / Spectra SE
Film - Polaroid 669 / PZ600 Black & White
