Finally finally reunited with my scanner.. here are some photos from this summer, and a couple of snaps from my shoot with Amy months ago. These are all taken with my film SLR, but I'm working on finding another snapshot camera that compares to my lost Minolta..I of course have had no luck. It's not so easy to carry an SLR around everywhere, and it doesn't make super quick snapping very easy.

I found that a lot of the photos from these sets came out really grainy, even when using 200-400 films, and I can't really think why. Is it the camera, the film, or some mistake I've made??

These will look much better on my flickr once I've uploaded them....

Goodbye Iceland

I have like no time to write this, but I wanted to say something on my last night in Iceland!

These 9 weeks have gone incredibly slow, yet somehow really fast... funny how that works isn't it. I can't say I've been very creatively productive, but I have been very busy. I learned how to drive, I earned me some money (which disappeared when I went to exchange my ISKs into GBPs today at the bank) and gave blood for the first time.

I did do one photo shoot a couple days ago with a lovely young lady, but I'm not going to post anything on here until I have edited all the photos I liked, and had my films developed. I'm pretty happy with them though, and I hope people will enjoy them. My biggest worry is that the films won't look good, as I do have NINE to process. Basically, I have a whole mountain to show when I get within the proximity of a scanner. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that thing right now....

As a farewell to Iceland, I went to the hairdressers to get the mess on my head sorted, and here is the result:

It still looks true to form in it's mane-like manner, but more polished and, well, less rooty. The smell of toner is sure to stay with me for at least a week.

Here's what's left of my farewell sweets. I am not going to miss them one bit, as I've eaten nothing but sugar whilst here.

Really really have to stop writing now... I have only 6 hours until I begin my journey back, and I haven't actually started packing....

(Sorry about the poor speedy grammar.)
