Diana Visions 1

Oh joy! Although I've been shooting pretty regularly with my Diana+ camera for the last 4 months, none of the pictures have appeared here. Not because I didn't love the images (well...sometimes my experiments don't work, but that's expected), but because I still haven't managed to pull together the last couple of pieces of an enlarger/darkroom setup and I didn't have an scanner. So trapped on film, the images were only viewed in reverse on improvised lightboxes in my apartment. Then I received an awesome birthday gift of a scanner that will scan film, including medium format, so I've been a scanning worker bee for the last few days and likely will be for a couple more weeks. I'm only through about 3 rolls of film, but I still have at least 10 left (plus some film that hasn't been developed yet!) including some pictures from our trip to New Mexico last year, so there is plenty more of this to come. This first set were shot with the Diana+, an awesome little medium format film plastic toy camera that's extremely light, extremely simple (expose multiple times until your heart's content!), completely manually wound and has the ability to remove the lens and use it as a pinhole camera, which is awesome. I love having this little camera with me all of the time as an alternative opposite to my cell phone!

10 on 10, March 2013

Although I intended on using a different camera for each 10 on 10 , I decided to go with my Olympus E-520 again this month.

my sweet, always moving, impossible to take perfect pictures of, rat : watering some of my air plants (hopefully more to come on these guys at some point) : visiting the farmers market : clear spring morning in Los Angeles : walking around doing errands :  crow captures while walking around  : doing stuff at home : trying to get my sewing machine to work again : preparing for black and white film developing :  film development complete!
