italy on film, again

Rome, Italy

hello! it’s me. i’ve been wondering if after all these years…ok, enough of that. yep, i’ve been gone so long adele has even released new material. we’ve done a fair bit of travelling during my 18-month absence & i recently had a couple of rolls of 120 film developed. one contained a major fail of a holga experiment, luckily the other captured a rather successful photo diary documenting 2-weeks in italy. you can read more about it on my blog, accooohtrements, but here are my favourite snaps.

a new old toy

Minolta 110 Zoom SLR camera

this minolta 110 zoom slr camera belonged to my late paternal grandfather. it was passed down to me a couple of years ago & i finally got round to playing with it over the weekend. i’ve no doubt that it is in full working order as it’s been incredibly well cared-for. i am also in no doubt that the spoils of my first roll will be terrible, but it’s already teaching me a lot about not being lazy & properly getting my head (& hands) around manual settings. wish me luck.
