Friday Film Shots

I took delivery of new polaroid films this week, the Impossible project has now bought out the Polaroid company, and has reverted to t he original name. They’ve also released a new camera, and improved the film. It used to take 35-40 minutes for the Impossible film to develop, but with the new film it’s…

Thursday Thoughts

It’s been a busy day for me, I worked an extra morning at the clinic, then did some shopping and came home to have a mad cooking session.  Now and again Phil or I will do a job lot of dishes and freeze them so we don’t have to mess about cooking when we get…

Fragglerockin’s Mosaic in Progress! – A WiPW Guest Post

Originally posted on Clockwork Clouds:
One thing I’m learning through Work in Progress Wednesday (WiPW), is that nothing is ever straight-forward; we all get side tracked, life always gets in the way. It’s nice to learn that it’s the case for almost everyone, that progress sometimes grinds to halt, but if we learn anything from…

Friday Film Shot

It rained, it stopped, it rained, it stopped, ad infinitum. I cooked egg fried rice for the weekend, and (soft focus 🙂 ) enchilada’s for dinner did the housework, did the washing, and so roll on the weekend!      

Thursday Thoughts.

I knew I should have just done the crossword and the word scrambler in the newspaper this morning, but I went and spoilt it all by reading the news as well, and as always ended up being incensed.  Apparently in order to make our way in the world after bloody Brexit, we will be increasing…

Monday Mobile Moments ~ PIP app

My latest app acquisition for the iPhone, is also available on android, and is called PIP (picture in picture).  Meant for the selfie generation (of which I am not) it’s a fun app with several ways to make a picture inside a picture. It’s easy enough to use, though full of annoying adverts for more…

Film Friday

Sad I can’t use the Rolleiflext until I can get it into Newcastle for a fix, but I still have the polaroid SX-70 to play with.  Hit and miss on focus as always but it never seems to matter.  I will call them soft~focus rather than blurry as  f*@k 🙂  

Thursday Thoughts

The weather is crap. All day grey, dark and rain.  Last week I wrote that I was looking forward to the colours of Autumn, but this isn’t quite what I meant!  But, I have a roof on my house, the garden furniture is still in the garden, soaked, but there, my car is not upside…

Monday Mobile Moments ~ Hipstamatic

I think of all the millions of photography apps for the iPhone that are available, Hipstamatic is my absolute favourite and the one I use most.  Released in December 2009,with version 100, we are now on 339 and the app is still going strong.  It simulates different films and lenses, which you can use in…

Across The Pond ~ August 2017

Our ongoing collaboration of iPhone photography (details HERE).  For August it was Kathy’s turn to choose the theme, and she chose ‘use the Plotograph app’, which I featured back in the blog HERE Of course it’s not possible to do them as a diptych so have run them together in a short video.  Mine are…

Thursday Thoughts

After the summer or lack of it that we had up here, I am really looking forward to the end of it. Autumn will be along shortly, and that is the best time for photography, well apart from spring, and sunny days by the sea, and snowy scenes 🙂 but seriously, I love the colours…

Monday Mobile Moments ~Gudak app review.

I came across this fun little app, based on the old Kodak instant cameras.  In this day of instant phone camera shots it’s a bit of a kick back to days of film, when you have to wait to see what you shots you took.  As you can see from the view finder at the…
