It has been strange getting used to the huge craziness that is London but taking photographs has been my way of making it small again.
Here is a selection of Polaroid’s that have helped me make London a more manageable place to be!
I was given this amazing camera as a gift this October and have been having so much fun with it, much to the annoyance of those around me who have become my subject matter!
It is an Piano Black Instax mini 5OS, where my other polaroid cameras have a retro charm in the bulky chunkiness this one is definitely their elegant cousin!
It uses Fuji Instax mini film so it has been lovely to be making tiny work again.
If you take a look at my old work you will see I have used it before but in a very different way!
The camera is not only a beautiful piece equipment, but is so easy to use and does what you tell it to.
The film, though expensive in the fancy pants lomography shops, is actually not that bad when you buy in bulk from ebay. It works out about 44p a print.
Some people do struggle with the viewfinder as it doesn’t directly show you what you get, this is easy to get used to and a truly wonderful bit of machinery to make art with.
The thing I love most is that it doesn’t allow for excuses, it is so simple and easy to use that there is no reasons in the world that can stop you photographing!
Perhaps it is only brief but I think this moment of sunshine needs to be celebrated, especially after the crazy wind and rain we have had over the last few days.
It feels like years ago I posted about the last day of sunshine and today is giving me that sunshine feeling once again!!
Could it be that summer is on it’s way again?
I took a couple of Polaroids to celebrate!
