English Summer

5th of November was last night, with the associated bangs and whizzes of fireworks, and it’s been rainy all weekend. I feel nostalgic for the long summer I have enjoyed. Here are a few photos of when the sun was bright and shorts were an option.

In summer I found for free, some expired film from gumtree and bought a new-old Olympus AF-1 mini. It’s a totally automatic point and shoot, which I love because it’s so light in weight, you can shove it in a backpack and forget about it. It’s perhaps not the best choice for expired film which would like more exposure than the mini will want to execute. More than half of my shots were under exposed, and looked as cloudy as the “coloured bikes” shot in the gallery. Still worth it to have a carry around camera.
