Sunshine; Sunglasses; Smiles

Alexa, a very old friend of mine, being all cute and lovely last summer.
This was one of our last days at college I believe?? I used these pictures in my Photography final piece anyway... all processed and printed by hand ooobviously. No idea what the film is. Probably Ilford 100, I ordered a huge amount in bulk cos I love it so much...
Anyway, these copies I've uploaded here aren't very good quality as they're photographs of the photographs - the originals are pretty massive and won't fit on our scanner.
They always make me smile :)

Sketches + Scribbles

I know this is meant to be a blog of my photographs, buuut I've decided other arty creative bits are allowed too, wheeey.
My lion at the top is my favourite :) The others I all did for college so I s'pose there's an element of having to do them rather than wanting to do them involved... although I did want to do them too... but Art at college was just jumping through hoops most of the time, which didn't ever sit well with me :/ it just kills the whole point, non?

Larmer Tree Festival 2010

A week in Dorset stewarding at Larmer Tree with Imogen... Very nice indeed! My favorite thing about it were the peacocks that hung around the site. Flirting with festival goers and squawking from trees etc. Being all beautiful and regal. I love them! Why are their feathers meant to be bad luck??

Big Chill Festival 2009

Pics from last year's Big Chill! God, this weekend was just about perfect. SO hot, sunny, blissful, fun, carefree... I was very very happy here :)
Anyway. Just downloaded some free "Make-your-photos-look-like-Polaroids" software - click here for the website - and ran these Chill pics through to see what would happen. Not bad really! I like the colors, kinda cheesy and mmmm, rustic. Until I can afford a real Polaroid camera this budget substitute will have to do.


I love you baby x

Barcalona, Black And Whites ∆

A mix of pictures from Ilford 100 and Kodak 400 films, both taken on my mum's shitty old compact Pentax film camera... Which I LOVE. It's like a brick and it goes to all the festivals with me :) VERY RELIABLE. Anyway. Blah blah blah. "I never met anyone that didn't loooove Barcelooohhhhnnnaaa!!"

I miss this!! X x X

Barcelona ☀

Mad, beautiful, fun, nocturnal, sunny, pounding, busy, rejuvenating, fresh and inspiring week away in Barcelona with my boyfriend Karis, cousin Nick and two lovelies we met out there, Andrew and Mollie.
More of this, pleeeeease!
Been back here a few times now and honestly I love it to pieces. It's so exciting. Plus it's a real heaven to take photographs in... Would love to return again and stay for ages and just relax into a Spanish lifestyle and take photos, and stay in an open plan apartment that has shutters on the windows and a little balcony, and sleep in a big double bed with white cotton sheets. Oh oh ohhhh. Mission in life = make fantasies into realities. COS WHY THE HELL NOT.
