a fraudulent photographer

Is what I feel like at the moment. But I deny all responsibility for this and instead claim that all is fair in love and war. And its definitely love. It has been for years. Probably always will be. Confused? Take a look at this:

Gorgeous. Yes, I dig polaroids. I love the white frame, the fact they're a square not a rectangle, I love the vignetting,the fading, the over-exposed and the underexposed, the over-saturated and blurred. I adore emulsion streaks and the little patterns on the polaroid paper. What I don't love so much is how expensive it is, especially for someone who likes to take as many pictures as I do.

So I don't own a polaroid camera, as much as I would love to. Instead I do it all in photoshop, and therefore am a complete polaroid fraud. Busted.

Hi feet. I'm kinda excited to see how these will look printed out, I have an uncontrollable urge to write in black marker on the bottom of them.

Needle Thief

He pulled all the stitches off my needles and chewed through the yarn. I should be mad... but he looks so damn cute! Blankets coming on really well, will probably have to turn into one of the old ladies from the shreddies advert to get it finished in time to go back to uni though. Or possibly an octopus, which would be like, way cool.

It took me the best part of 10 minutes to untangle the pup, bless.

Brainwave! Been really struggling to blog without my laptop (hence blog silence) as its really difficult on my phone. But I've found the Blogger app so I'm happy again - its actually a pretty awesome app, if you have a smartphone & use Blogger you should check it out. Seems slightly ironic that I figure this out the day before I go on holiday, for which my phone will not be accompanying me!
Had some really upsetting news about my camera involving a ridiculous amount of money to get it repaired so I've bitten the bullet and invested in a compact instead for now. Maybe someday I'll be able to justify the spend but at the moment its just not feasible.
Kind of loving the compact though, love having a camera so little that I can constantly have it with me!

On another note... a couple of phone snaps from a charity balloon race I was involved in. Love love love the fact the sky darkened just before the release! The kids thought it was super fun and its been really cool getting all the slips back to see where they ended up!
