A smattering from home

As regular followers of this blog might be aware. I have a terrible relationship with the Canon EF 50mm 1.8 lens. It’s horrid, unclear, slow, noisy, and downright frustrating. So, I’ve retired it to where it always should have belonged – the cheapy film camera. I’ve had  great last few weeks getting to know 35mm film at apertures I’ve never been able to access before. A smattering of home for you as I sort through my films from a recent trip to Christchurch. In sum, Mt Eden, Spence, Our city, toy cars, Tanuki’s Cave, moustache play, road signs and HOURS spent readying our website.

When shooting a test roll of film there’s obviously a lot of times that I’m out with the wifey. So in a totally non-creepy way, here’s a few more of the test shots continuing on from the last post. When I look at them though, I can see themes that have been fascinating me in my photography lately. Lo-fidelity, blur, close-ups, overexposure and reflections. The last shot?, well that’s just a memento of summer gone by. Bring on November, and christmas and the purchase of my very first barbecue to go in my very first house with an outdoor area. 

(this post is also a test because my mind has been boggling linking twitters to facebook fan-pages to blogs to RSS. aargh)
