I know, I know, it is the end of September, the very end, the last day, the 30th and here I am still babbling on about August. No, I am not stuck in some time warp or summer longing (heck no, I am loving the chilly nights and mornings), I used a 35mm vintage Minolta camera to take my August Break photos so therefore I had to get them developed and before that I had to finish the film. The first part/film of my August Break photos are written about here.
I finished the picture taking and I snapped a few extra to finish the film and then I took it to be developed and then, I forgot. But then I remembered again and I picked out my favorites and ignored the out of focus ones.
Day 18. Look Up. It was a stormy day and I snapped a picture of the cloudy dark sky before the clouds dropped all of their stored rain at the end of a hot August day.
Day 19. Sweet Delights. I bought these peaches for everyone else in the house because although I love them, I can’t eat peaches because they make my mouth itch. If I cook them into muffins or scones I am able to enjoy them (I wonder if there is some science reason for this) so I made some peachy muffins from a couple of these.
Day 20. Two. The number two on a wall and two surfaces. This is one of my favorite photos.
Day 21. Real Life. Lists, menu ideas and shopping list with magazines and cookbooks. I can’t make out what it was on the list, but I can see ‘DO IT!’ written next to it. I hope I did. I live off lists, things I need to do and food shopping are my main lists. Are you a list maker or do you manage to remember everything you need to do/buy?
Day 23. Water. The creek in the woods where we go exploring and paddling in our wellies. We have found all sorts down here, marbles, pots, bottles and a statue of Krishna!
Day 25. Green. I like this photo too and to be honest I am amazed that it is in focus. I stuck my lens pretty much right into the leaves and got a nice detailed ‘green’ picture.
Day 28. In my Bag. In this bag is a knitting project which has staggered to a halt because I have got a bit stuck. I will make a big effort to sort it out and hopefully I will finish it. It is a scarf so I had better get a wiggle on if I want it for this winter! Maybe I will shoot for winter 2020 and be realistic!!
So that was the photos from this year’s August Break which is hosted by Susannah Conway. I enjoyed using my film camera but I do like to see what I am taking now that I mainly use a DSLR and my phone for photos.
Now I am ready for October tomorrow! Happy Wednesday x
Oh, that number 2 and the bag of wool, gorgeous. I wish I could walk to your house and get you to show me how you do it. xx
Hi Zoe! I love how the 2 came out! I am not a great knitter, which is probably why I have got stuck! I would it if we could all just visit each other, just for a chat and a cuppa.
Love the way you have presented these photos Clare! I will have to get my camera out again and have a play. xx
Yes, get that camera out Lisa! The photos are ‘hung’ on the wall with magnets!
Yes I agree with Lisa, I love the way your laid your pics out! They look fantastic.
I almost forgot there is such a thing as film! Good on you.
And those peaches look amazing, only a month or two & stonefruit will be back in season here in Oz. xx
Film is fun and I love getting the photos printed all ready for the album!
well those were all gorgeous! magazine quality!!!
FILM!!!! wouldn’t that be something if it made a huge come back like music on vinyl… never thought i’d see that day buy hey, it could happen.
i’m a list maker too. the older i get the more i need them, it’s no longer a novelty to write a list to cross things off to feel accomplished.
i rarely ever remember to take my phone when i leave the house for the grocery but if i forget my little notebook i panic.
I do like using film and polaroids too (polaroid film costs a fortune though!). I think film use is getting more and more popular too.
I know what you mean, if I forget my shopping list, it is a big panic!
