films

I finally got around to developing some film – its been sat in my cameras for ages, a few from the Trip 35 and three from the Hassleblad.

I’m going to try to take a few more photos this week as I’m up in the city every day – I just need to take an hour after work to point and shoot at a few people 🙂

My pet project is to use up all the films I’ve bought before the end of the year – that means shooting at least a roll every week or two.  Perhaps I can get around to my project theme too, but it does require asking strangers to pose (not rude) for me.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s the first of the shots from the Olympus Trip 35

This weekend was so chilled out – we had a lazy morning on Saturday, just kicking back on the sofa and chatting for a few hours, catching up on each others thoughts. I love our Saturday mornings when we get the chance to do that.

I really wanted to go take some photos on Saturday afternoon, so we saddled up and headed North to check out Scarborough Beach and have some lunch. Now Perth’s northern beach suburbs get a lot of hype about being where its all happening – all the rich folks live in giant houses overlooking the sea – whats not to like, right?

Well Scarborough was nice enough – the surf was up and hundreds of surfers were catching waves in the warm afternoon. We sat and had fish and chips and watched the surfers wipe out which was nice – but I had expected more and actually, Scarborough was a bit nothing really

There’s not that much there apart from the bloody great hotel complex – Rockingham has way more cafes and classy restaurants. So much for the millionaire’s playground then. We drove on up past Trigg, North Beach, Marmion and Sorrento and I have to say – meh! Big ugly vulgar houses, flash cars, people jogging up the footpath, only the occasional overpriced cafe and so little character to be seen anywhere.

As disappointing as the places were, we had fun just driving about.

We drove back to Fremantle to have a wander around the markets and get some decent culture and a coffee on the strip.

We found a wonderful little cupcake shop in the markets – My Yummy Vice – http://www.myyummyvice.com which had gluten free and vegan cupcakes – so we stocked up 🙂 Awesome end to the day 🙂

Best cakes ever. Well, maybe apart from the ones I made 😉

Fremantle

Jay and I are off to have a day out in Freo today for our anniversary and it looks as if summer is here – 34 degrees and sunshine.

A bit of shopping perhaps, a walk around the Fremantle Markets some tapas for lunch at the Mad Monk, Mao’s Last Dancer the cinema and then, depending on time and appetite, maybe a hot chocolate in the Chocolateria San Churros or perhaps a refreshing beer at Little Creatures

And I’m taking the Holga 🙂

See yer all later
