…and thinking of flying. Two of my favorite things.

So while I’m out you can gaze at some slides taken from a plane.

Because looking at pictures of my desk and papers would be pretty boring.

[I took these on a flight out of the old Larnaca airport. The building might have sucked, but taking off and landing always had a good view. As does the new airport.]

I got a Polaroid Land SX-70 off eBay. Loaded up a pack of Impossible film and started testing it.

Looks like its light meter is a little off as all my shots came overexposed.

I tested using my usual models and following some advice from my resident photographer and the super nice people of Vintage Instant and somewhere between the first and eighth shot I found myself so fascinated by the camera that  I even went and read about its history. And watched old commercials of it.

But I guess my favorite moment was when after driving for two and a half hours I stood with sand beneath my toes and snapped the last of my first Impossible PX70 film shots. And this was the result.

Just like Laurence Olivier said: “And then, the Impossible happens.” I smiled all the way home.

I give you…
a film of a Mysterious Pier.


 

I actually made this film last month when I was playing with my new pinhole cap. It just took a while to figure out how to edit it… Not bad for first try ever, no?
 
Some previous unedited but very fun attempts san pinhole in reverse chronological order:
 
 
Fanfarlo. They’re [relatively] new and shiny and really good. I hope to see them again this year.
 

 
And of course The Flaming Lips. One of the best bands to see live, ever. (Happy birthday, Wayne! ♥)
 

 
Happy new year, readers and friends. May it be the best one yet.

xoxo
