There’s something really cool about instant images you can touch instead of just see on a screen.

Especially when they’re a little imperfect , beautiful little things.

An instant art exhibition!

Out in the sun, to dry. (This is old-school peel-apart Polaroid film.)

He has been doing this for a while now, everywhere, not just volcanic beaches and museums of ancient things.)¬† Using expired film and cameras that I can only imagine were once called ‘portable’ because portable used to mean ‘can be lifted, even if heavy and inconvenient.’

So I got jealous. And got an old Polaroid SX-70 and some Impossible film. (Which, you have to develop in the dark still, and it’s not exactly the same, but like I told him, I am investing in the future…of the past. The Polaroid is dead, long live the Polaroid!)

So we went to this monthly fair in downtown Nicosia to sell our book. I don’t think I’ve ever been at Ledras street so early in the morning before.

The weather was sunny and breezy and finally cool enough to wear short sleeves.

Sold some books and someone made origami dinosaurs

There was an exhibition night there in one of the old abandoned buildings at the Ledra Street crossing, found out about it accidentally

Stop! Taking Photos is not Allowed!

Taking photos in not allowed, and sandbags

Those signs are like photographer’s catnip

Meeting

Meeting old friends = serendipity.

Oh, and before i forget, my little half-island, Happy Independence Day!

(I wrote a story about this last year, it’s in the book, and here, and it’s a little sappy.)
