Vintage Camera Collection

Now I know that a good mother doesn't really pick favourites but ... I really really love my Kodak Duaflex Camera.

(Hi Mum! I just referred to my vintage cameras as children. Looks like grandkids are a few years off at least)

But! it's only because I can use it with my DSLR and produce faux-vintage photos.
Like the hipstamatic app on my iPhone only old school.

Doily Banner, Trixie Delicious Bitch plate, a framed print, and a LOT of dirt on the lens.

All you do (thanks, photojojo) is frame your shot using the older camera (call it Camera B), then aim your digital camera (Camera A) at the viewfinder and take the picture. Afterwards, crop the photo to take out everything but the viewfinder image. Ta da!

I'm in Post Modern Ink

Post Modern Ink Issue 5.
Reader Submission ...

Reader Submissions Pages

Seriously! That's my shoulder!
And it's a full Page!

I was so excited & caught off guard (they don't even confirm they receive your submission let alone telling you it's been chosen) that I may have jumped up and down a little bit, definitely showed the people at the registers, and then shown everyone at my office. But who cares? that's me!

Teeny tiny Sarah-Rose

My name.
Teeny tiny & tonally similar but still there.

To be honest I'm just really glad they didn't include my shot on the YRT (You'll regret that) page.

Week Ten

The Week in Photographs

Sunday: At the Hutt Valley Rail Open Day.
Craig took me to the Hutt Rail Open Day because he likes to look at big machines. I wore short-shorts and bejewelled flats and wandered around taking photos.

Monday: My youngest sister started University today
My youngest baby sister started university on Monday, the other baby sister started a new job, living in a new flat. I felt old.

Tuesday: Walking to meet Craig near the train station
I have been meeting Craig at the train station before we drive home. On Tuesday I felt bad for the crowds delayed by broken down trains but so so glad that we drive in to Wellington now.

Wednesday: Craig was late
And on Wednesday Craig got caught in bombscare traffic and he was late. Thankfully it was sunny.

Thursday: Countries and Dates
Filling out a form for a NON SPECIFIC work thing, I have to list all the countries I've visited in the last five years.
The easiest way to do it was to work out where I was chronologically, hence all the UK entries.

Friday: DimitySo
Lingerie from the DimitySO team. I feel quite bad that I was so disappointed.

Saturday: Skulls at the Martinborough Fair
Craig and I drove up to Martinborough to attend their annual fair. He had to practically me away from the bones and fossils stand.
