Ding dong ditch a televangelist

A few months ago I bought a voucher from Groupon for £50 to spend on the Lomography website, and after much deliberation I bought the Holga 135 Twin Lens Reflex, a sweet little camera with a waist level view finder so you can literally 'shoot from the hip'.  I only got around to getting the film processed yesterday and after ending up seriously regretting taking my film to Jessops (a trip which culminated in the guy that worked there telling me my film was too cheap to scan to CD, which is, frankly, absolute guff - I should know, I used to work there).  Today I got my film back however, and although I only got 11 frames from my 36 film I was still pretty pleased with the results.  I really like the grainy film and the way the photos instantly transported me back to a summer of blue skies, ice cream vans and barbecues in the garden.





I also have some photos to share with you (probably tomorrow) of our evening of pumpkin carving and mulled wine last night but I am now off for a long bubble bath to the sounds of the latest Oh Comely magazine playlist (which you can listen to here if you have Spotify) and probably the sights of some form of trashy gossip magazine.  Night all!

  6. The photo's that did come out have come out really well :) Transporting me back to summer too!

    I used to have one of the urban outfitters little lomo cameras but had the same trouble of not many photo's actually developing and it was just costing too much so I sold it but now I kind of wish I had it back :( xx

  7. Oh gosh, in a non-creepy way, a waist-level viewfinder would make it nice and easy to get some inconspicious photos easily for the blog! I always feel so silly/self-conscious, whacking out my DSLR for photos of food or of something weird happening in the day.

    Anyway, stalkerish tendencies aside...! Your photos are blimmin' gorgeous, Rosie. I love the 90's feel to them, and they have a lovely, postcard feel to them too (: xxxx

  16. Those are great looking photos. The distortions make them more compelling. I really love lomo cameras. I own a Diana F+ camera and I just love it most especially when it takes photos.

  18. I love the Lomo effects on these photos. I would love to own a Lomo camera too. For now, I am using my digital camera to shoot beautiful scenes and I use adobe photoshop to add lomo effects on them.
