The first roll through the Sprocket Rocket has returned from the LomoLab. They're okay, I guess. I'm a little disappointed that some, which could have been nice, overlapped, and that they've not all been scanned in straight - but that's me being picky. The subject matter isn't very interesting - trees and estate! It's a shame I only had a roll of 24, as that equals 12 shots, because by the time I braved the lake, the roll had almost ended. I also took a couple of photos of my friends holding the cat, but they got lost in overlapping and unintentional double exposures, which is a shame.
Please, remind me never to use Lomography Redscale film again. This is the second roll I have used in as many years (roll one here), and the second of disappointment. Unfortunately, it was one of two 120 rolls I had left and I thought redscale would be preferable for an autumn scene over black and white. I have no idea what's going on with the bottom two, either. The rest of the roll is too dark to make anything out.
It has become apparent I am taking too many photos of the cat. He does
look quite dapper in this bow tie. Though, he always looks like a right
On Tuesday I went out for a walk for two hours! It was such a lovely afternoon and the park is beautiful and golden. It's a shame I left it until the last shot on the Sprocket Rocket film to go outside, but I did take out my Diana+ loaded with nasty redscale film. I've only used it once before, and didn't like it that much. I was curious to try it, but could only buy the film in a box of three. The only 120 film I had to hand was that or black and white, and I figured that'd be slightly better at catching autumnal colours. We'll see!
The GoldfrApp "Tales of Us" app came out a couple of months ago, but I've only recently downloaded it and love it. I'm a sucker for a double exposure. Here's one of the cat sat on the windowsill and some geese flying over the lake. It's pretty nifty that you can shake your phone and it'll choose two photos at random to merge together.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! My nephews picked out this onesie for my birthday and I quite like it. Beforehand I was slightly anti-onesie. I have also put up my tiny, tiny Christmas tree which the Nutcracker is standing guard of. I can't wait to watch The Nutcracker Christmas morning! Too impatient this year, I've never brought out the tree this early before.
It's been a long time since I did a book post, but that's because I've been reading The Master and Margarita FOREVER. I'm at about 60% now, and it's beginning to make more sense - I just find it a bit too baffling. Then again, Bulgakov is kinda like that, I suppose.
