My first dip back into the world of film started about 4 years ago with polaroid and lomography. At that time, I managed to buy original cameras from ebay at very reasonable prices! Both formats have a unique air of mystery to them. In an effort not to overload my bag with various cameras, I don’t often take the Lomo LC-A with me (although compared to others, it’s relatively small), but I recently loaded it up with some expired Kodak Portra 400 film and took it with me on our recent trip to the Kent and Sussex coast. The dark tones and natural vignetting are all part of its magic.
We spent the most wonderful long, lazy weekend by the sea.
The sun shone, the sky was constantly blue and there was a very summery feel in the air. The sea mist rolled in and back out again and the beach was almost empty (apart from one of my all time favourite singers, Alison Goldfrapp, filming a video in the dunes)!
On the drive back to London we visited the very atmospheric Dungeness – a photographer’s paradise. What more could you ask for…
It seems like we’ve been waiting a long time for a glimpse of summer weather on the weekend. This weekend, it finally appeared. We went to Epping Forest today, with a packed lunch in our rucksacks, found ourselves a secluded spot amongst the trees and took it all in.
