My 100th Blog Post!


A proud moment for me, this is my 100th blog post! I've been struggling to think of something appropriate/ witty without success, then stumbled across this fantastic machine from the past. So it's a self portrait made using an old passport machine in Fred Aldous, Manchester. This last year has been very much about digital photography for me, finding a camera that I enjoy using and wanting to be spontaneous and able to share my work as soon as I've made it. However this week has been more about chemical photography. Firstly I found three medium format films that I'd not processed from my Mamiya 7, so they were sent off and have arrived back, will be sharing soon. Then I bought some more Impossible Project film to experiment with in my Polaroid SX-70, and lastly of course I found this beautiful passport machine. I wonder if film will always be around? I certainly hope so as there is still a certain excitement, and aesthetic that is different to digital, even Instagram can't replicate it, thank goodness!

A big thank you for following me out there too. I'm chuffed that I seem to have a gang of regular people dipping in to see what I'm posting, and that buoys me on to keep sharing.
