Too much

I guess this is what happens when you leave your film in lemon juice for too long..

But, of course I still like it.

So, is it too much? I don't think so!

More pictures of Wollongong, more pictures of bikes, and more destroyed film. These are some of the out takes from the photos I took for Papergirl Wollongong. I will be sharing the photos that were selected for the upcoming Papergirl posters as they are released (I have posted one already to take a look back!). I am very excited about this project and will be sharing photos, news and opportunities about the street art movement in Wollongong as they happen!

These photos were taken on the same roll of destroyed film as my previous posts (Lucky 200 destroyed with lemon juice and hot water) and the same SLR (Pentax Spotmatic).

Summer daze

Flower from behind my ear.

Short walks to duck under the waves.

All on a beautiful day.

All captured on a Hanimex and Lucky 200.

Papergirl is coming to Wollongong.

She asked me to take all the photos for the posters / business cards / other goodies - so naturally I accepted. 

The photo below is the first one to make a public appearance.

A perfectly placed swing

Not many swing sets have this kind of view. Whoever thought to put it here.. genious. Even us big kids can't resist a good swing. Another snap from my destroyed roll of film (destroyed a roll of Lucky 200 film with hot water and lemon juice and then used it in my Pentax Spotmatic SLR).

See.Me EXPOSURE 2013, the fourth annual international photography competition, and I have entered! I submitted the four photos below:

(this way you can check them out even if you don't click through and vote - but while we are on the topic of voting - I would love it if you did so here!)

The first three you might recognise. The last one is a newbie.

This patch of sky

 One of my new favourite photos of mine - and it was a total fluke.

Birdin' about.

Another photo of the light house - I really just like the colour of the sky in this one.

So that camera I got for 2 bucks from an op shop takes a pretty nice picture. It's a hanimex and it's red and reminds me of a lego. Used it with Lucky 200 film for these ones. Vignetting was a cool surprise.

Let's just make this a week of street art, shall we..

Because I just love this guy.

Tuesday, 30 April 2013


Since we're already talking about street art.. check out this guy..

How cool is that? Not 100% sure who the artist is, so if you know I would love for you to let me know! I used Lucky 200 ISO film and a random Hanimex camera I picked up at an op shop for $2. I love the way this film picks up the colours of street art (I have used the same for my previous posts on street art and grafitti).

COOL UPDATE: So, since I put this post up I got an email from Si at Verb Syndicate - you know those awesome peeps that bring us Wonderwalls (yes, that is a link and you should check it out). Well, Si let me know that it was through Wonderwalls that we got Sydney street artist, Pudl, to come down and give us this gem. Like Pudl? Click through to his blog here!

Have you seen this woman?

If you haven't, then you have obviously been walking down Keira Street with your eyes closed. This amazing piece was done by Melbourne artist, Rone. Want to know more about Rone ('cause I know I did)?.. He's featured in VNA issue 21, along with some other rad cats. I suggest you check it out..

Expect the unexpected

I wasn't expecting most of my photos on destroyed film to turn out like these ones have, with bits of the film completely missing. I was expecting mostly just discoloration, more like warped colours. Which don't get me wrong I did get some of those ones too, more like the first two photos in yesterdays post (and more to come). However, I really like this burnt out look. I have acutally been toying with the idea of taking some developed 35mm film to a flame to cause a little wreckage.. now I will do it for sure.

Oh shit

Finally got the destruction I was looking for..

Left my Lucky 200 film in a mixture of lemon juice and hot water for 2 hours (shaking it every 10 minutes or so), let it dry for about a month and then loaded it in to my Pentax Spotmatic.. More photos to come this week.

Head in the clouds

My experimentation with clouds in photos is bordering on obsessive. I think they just make everything better. Maybe it's because my head is often in the them.

Party time

Having a disposable camera with you at a house party is always a good idea - especially when there is live music at said party.

Yea, we know what's up.

Beautiful (birth)day. Favourite people. Amazing view. How could we not go for a picnic.

A bit torn on this one. In one way I love it and in another I don't. Maybe because in my head I pictured it would turn out much cooler than it has. Ah, anyways. The people in it I love. The Walking Who and a crowd full of friends at a Walking Who gig. So I guess there's not too much to complain about, maybe I do love this snap. Let me know what you think.

Creative process

While on my way to creating the photos I used in yesterday's post, these three images happened too. Not as cool as the other ones (in my opinion) but worth a share. A bit of insight into my thought process when playing with my scanner at the very least I suppose.

I thought I would mention as well, just in case this doesn't already go without saying, I don't use Photoshop or anything of the sort with any of my photos. They are all done either with just the camera itself (all analogue) or by scanning multiple negatives on top of one another (with an Epson Perfection V330 Photo scanner).

Creative souls

So the boys from The Walking Who did an interview with Sideways Through Sound, played some acoustic tunes of theirs too, and I want you to listen. As encouragement I give you the three photos above.. Rohin, Jay then Paul.. doin what they do. So listen here. If you don't, then you'll only have yourself to blame when these guys make it big and you can't say that you were one of the lucky humans to hear them first.

[photos are just some scanner magic, old photos of the boys scanned on top of some way too expired other photos, dreamy hey.]

Power couple

Saw these two at opposite ends of the stage and had to bring them together. One of my most favourite couples ever. [same camera and film as my last few posts]

Ladies in the crowd

Where our boys go, us girls will follow. Lookin' good, ready to dance and prepared to scream 'yew!' at the end of every song in support of their crazy good tunes. Not to mention, there will always be at least a few of us equipped with film and cameras to capture the night (here's looking at you, Ash and Leah).

Yet again, Diana Mini and Lomography 800 film (just got a new roll developed, gotta love getting new stuff to work with)
