Film Photography: Part 2

Friday, 27 December 2013

 brisbane river
 my beautiful best friend (who now lives in london!)
 yawns for little sausages
 gold coast beaches
mumma and myself

001. As promised... the second part of my photos. I love black and white images, even though they are a little pricer to develop, I think the depth to them is better than any digital filter can create. 

002. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

Film Photography: Part 1

Tuesday, 24 December 2013

reading harry potter
the big banana (shot from a moving car)
shadows at the stables
waiting for a train
sydney road trip
a day on the island

001. The other day I picked up some film I was waiting to develop. I got two colour rolls and one black a white roll printed. These are just a few of my favourite shots.

002. With Christmas only 1 sleep away I'm sure life is going to get in the way of blogging, so I'm going to schedule another 'part two' post for the black and white photos. 

003. I'd love to hear what you think of the photos, film photography is so fun! Wishing you all a merry Christmas!

001. Yesterday it was my 17th birthday! I went out for Mexican with all my girlies and these are just a couple of snaps from the night. Maybe I'm getting sentimental being a big 17 year old now, but I am honestly so blessed and grateful to have such an amazing group of friends and family. 

002. I wore my new dress from Topshop, which featured in this post, but sadly didn't have time to shoot an outfit. I'm still slightly in love with it so I'm sure it will feature again shortly.

 Top: Verge Girl// Shorts: American Apparel

001. During my holiday boredom the other day I scanned my polaroid photos. I then decided to mess around on photoshop a little. I'm actually really happy with the quality that they scanned through. What do you think of this post, mixing it up from fashion a little?

Matt Corby Gig

Thursday, 17 October 2013

001. Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending Matt Corby's concert. If you have never heard of the talented man before you seriously need to question what you're doing with your life and go search him up right now; trust me your ears will thank me later.

002. I'm not going to do a detailed re-cap of the concert because honestly I can't even describe how magical he is live. When trying to describe Matt Corby the first word I think of is 'beautiful,' not only because he is clearly pretty darn nice to look at, but because of his voice. There is something so raw and honest in it that captivated the entire audience. He performed a new song of his that had some fancy beat-boxing and then some loop pedal action that was just incredible, my heart was melting. The voice, the lighting (that made him look like an angel), the atmosphere, the hair... I could sit here forever listing what a great night it was but I don't really feel like typing an essay. To sum it up, if you ever have a chance to see this man perform, DO IT! I promise you it will be one the most beautiful music experiences of your life.

Light Leaks

Monday, 24 June 2013

001. Finally got some rolls of film developed! It was my first time ever getting film developed so I wasn't expecting anything too amazing, but I do like quite a few of the photos. I had a couple of issues in the first rolls with the half frame setting, but hopefully now that I know how to use it a bit better the problem won't happen again. I love the effect on film cameras and the anticipation of getting your photos back. What do you think of shooting on film, do any of you do it?

Sew Your Heart Out

Saturday, 15 June 2013

001. Quick post today featuring my new sewing machine! I'm so so so in love and very excited to learn how to use all the bells-and-whistles. It's a Brother NS30 and I snatched it up during the end of financial year sales for a bargain. It has 70 different types of stitching which I think is pretty nifty and maybe a little overwhelming, but hopefully I can figure it all out soon. Keep your eyes peeled for some DIY's or sewing projects coming up.

Chalk It Up

Thursday, 14 February 2013

001. Hello blog readers (if there is any...), today is just a quick little post of my bedroom door I have recently re-painted. I made a bit of an artwork with all my favourite musicians, thought it might be nice to post. They are just my iPhone snaps so sorry for the quality, but I did make up for it with some snazzy editing. 

PS. Happy Valentines Day! xo

001. Hello everyone, welcome to my new blog! I'm Lena, a 16 year girl with a serious shopping problem. I've mucked around with Tumblr for a while and have finally decided to step into the world of 'serious' bloggers. I aim to post outfits, fashion and just photos of life in general. I hope you like it; wish me luck! x
