nooh-vell-vay-g

meet lolita!
i got her last september and only just finished the film & got the prints. it's silyl but without a lightmeter and flash it's too difficult to use in gloomy british weather. it's summery now though so i think i'll use it more if i get a job. it costs twice as much for 12 medium format prints done over the same time as 24 35mm prints. stupid.



top two are from barcelona, oh memories.
i turned the one with the pillow into b&w cos there was a lightleak which wasn't working in colour.

yesterdays portrait was kerouac, continuing with the beatnik theme. its not great. must keep trying



& more altered book. the monster looks stupid. i can't do monsters either. need to work on that.



today i collated all the ideas i'd jotted down on various pages of my moleskin into one neat list and it spreads 4 pages. i really wish i didn't have to go back to college on monday!
i also went to see jules et jim. i love french new wave so much, every time i see one of the films i just feel so inspired, i want to make beautiful black and white films in paris so so so much.

my left ear just went weird
