This is the 2nd roll of film, I’ve put through my dad’s old 1986 Chinon CP-7m. The first was one was a bit of bust, because I was just messing about, and the pictures came out so overexposed I thought the camera might actually be broken. This time, to eliminate “user error”, I kept it safely in “P” mode and got some not too shabby results. It’s a brick of a thing to carry around, but I think I’ll be using it more from now on. Film on this occasion was my favourite Kodak 400 Gold. Slightly grainy, but safer in the changeable light conditions in London, I feel. Damn, I love the winter sun.
Results from recent experimenting with a new toy cam I acquired recently. Very basic plastic camera called “split cam”. I bought mine at the Photographer’s Gallery in London for £7, but I’ve seen them go for as much as £30 on “gifts” sites. Don’t be a dummy and pay £30. I was too impatient to fill a whole roll before developing. I’m pretty pleased with the initial results. Let me know what you guys think. Do more?
Nineteen minutes until your next service.

One of my first gigs in London, seeing Animal Collective (touring their album Strawberry Jam) at The Coronet in Elephant and Castle. Floated home.
A photo I took years and years ago. A personal favourite of mine.
New experiments in film. A few simple images from London. Oxford str, Paddington station, Harrow.
The sun was out today in London, so I decided to head out for a walk with my Lumix, so I can continue to get to grips with it. I’ve seen it from the train a few times, passing Kensal Green, so decided to finally hop of the train here to check out Kensal Green cemetary. I also wanted to check out an exhibition at the Dissenters’ Gallery. There are lots of interesting textures and angles and lots of cool greenery and birds here; a surprisingly nice and interesting place for a walk. I didn’t find it depressing, but I also didn’t spend much time reading messages on gravestones. I just enjoyed the oldness, the greeness and the general tranquility. I never managed to find the gallery, hidden somewhere on the grounds, but it was worth the visit anyway. Here’s a few ivy-heavy cross-proccessed (x-pro) shots I took:
A quiet moment when the noise of the world looks and feels far away. Shot on my Konica C35 at Camden Arts Centre.
