Also – I’ve gone back to the dark ages and purchased an old Pentax K1000 – just like I used at university from 1996-7. I bought one second hand at a New York market for $100 in 1999 and it lasted for about 100 rolls before finally giving up (it may well have had a problem that was easy to fix, but I left it at a relative’s place in Holland 4 years ago!), so I bought another one off eBay a couple of weeks ago for 65 pounds. I took few B&W photos at Southall (aka ‘Little India’) last weekend, so I’m waiting to finish the roll and see how those turn out! It’s a real ‘workhorse’ student camera, but takes great pics.

Abbey Rd Polaroid by Kim Gilmour

It’s been a while, but here’s a new Polaroid Maipulation – this one’s of Abbey Road, St John’s Wood. It’s a fairly short walk to the studios, and despite it being 8.30pm (and still light) there were quite a few tourists milling around. If I’d been there a few hours earlier, the colours would have turned out more vibrant. Still, I’m happy with it because it’s been many months since I’ve done one!

Not A London Photo (2)

Before your eyes deceive you, no, this is not a photo of London! But I’m just back from my hometown of Sydney where it’s supposed to be almost Winter, and yet I still managed to get a little sunburnt there. Today in London it’s pouring with rain, although yesterday (public holiday) the weather was beautiful outside – we took a fun cruise from Westminster to Greenwch and back, and planted some herbs.
