TONY GALE IN WRITING ABOUT LOMOGRAPHY SHOCKER
(And I didn’t swear once.)
Oh, to live on a boat like this. on Flickr.
A lot of water in Stockholm means a lot of boats. A lot of very, very nice boats.

Ryanair: Actually a more comfortable experience than I imagined.

Probably the most tourist-y photo I’ve ever shot, if I’m honest.
I was in Stockholm a while back and I’ve finally got all the rolls scanned and sorted. Expect a steady stream of Swedish scenes (boom, alliteration) over the next week or two.
Trying to find an effective way to use photographs is difficult in a world saturated with images of itself.
I don’t generally reblog anything but this definitely rings true.
Food for thought on a Friday morning.
rlfsoso asked: well, interesting take on slide vs. color negative. I have similar problems with scanning color myself BUT let the pros take care of it: I now use FINDLab, USA, Utah, USA, costs are 18$/roll, large scans (including taxes, duty, posting) and I am sending my film from Germany! They do really good color correcting for that price. examples on my blog.
Having checked out your photos I definitely think that FINDLab are a bloody good choice if you want C41 done. But considering Peak Imaging do E6 for £4.55, are in the same country as me (England) AND have a freepost address to send the film to, I think they’re going to be getting my money for the foreseeable future.
So I’ve finally caught up on scanning and I’ve got nineteen rolls in Aperture that have to be sorted through and uploaded/printed/stored. I really shouldn’t have let them stack up; there’s some stuff in there that is quite old and could have been uploaded ages ago.
But I’m putting that off with a “lesson” from a recent trip. Partially because I want to prove a point to someone, but also because it’s been a long time since I wrote something on here that no one else gives a crap about.
So here’s a photo that I took last month:
Lovely, isn’t it? But it didn’t start that way.
On the old train line. on Flickr.
So I’ve been kinda busy and I have loads of rolls of film to develop.
Until I work through some of that backlog, here’s this photo of an abandoned train line in central England.
A very British winter. on Flickr.
It’s been ages since I used the Fed 2, so I thought I’d take it out for some exercise. It’s still got a nice charm to it, but I don’t think I can justify keeping this Jupiter 3 anymore. Too much money sunk into it and I just don’t use it enough. Shame, really.
