Blursome Colors

I took this one night while drinking on a jetty underneath the Sydney harbour bridge with my Dian F+, super blurry photo of fireworks, fireworks reflected in the water, and a boat. The photograph doesnt make much sense at first glance, but I like that. Just the colors and composition of them seems to work to me. But I'll let you decide. (shot on medium format film)

St Kilda on film

If your a regular visitor here, you would have seen a previous post of some photographs I took of a sunset in St Kilda in Melbourne around mid February. Heres a couple off the 120 film i just got developed. One of the storm clouds at sunset at the beach, this frame I hadn't quite rolled on properly but I like the way that looks. Also one of the old roller coaster at Luna Park. I love the cinematic look this film has added to the photos, you cant imitate that.

Double Take

Here are a couple of medium format photos I double exposed (two photos on one frame of film). Pretty happy how they came out, especially the first one, its got that autumnal look & feel about it. I was stood under a tree and simply took one shot facing up at the leaves and the sky and the second one facing down at the dead foliage on the ground.
The second one is a washing line and a backdoor awning, I tried to make the lines conflict each other so it almost confused the eye a little.
More medium format to come.

King Lake ashy trails

Here is a photograph I took at King Lake in one of the areas that was heavily hit by the tragic fires. This was taken on medium format film. The road sign still has the burn marks on it as well as the trees still being bare with nothing but ashy bark left.
I like the creepy look the film adds to this shot, suits the atmosphere of the place. Its hard to come close to the feeling you get when you see the devastation of King Lake first hand.

On Track

During my time in Melbourne getting from place to place was kind of hard without a car of my own, so I made the most of the trains & trams. I took this photograph on medium format film with my Diana F+ camera whilst waiting for a train at Epping station.

Under The Bridge

On a recent session with some Sydney homies, Frenchy carving up the tight transition under a bridge where a market place once thrived. Now its a place where skaters thrive.
