First Roll of Film After 5 Years.

Monday, June 18, 2012

So a while back I got two gifts from my grandmother. Both of them were film cameras. They had them for a really long time. The first one she gave me was shcwarzkopf. (I know you might say it is a brand for hair products, and I have no idea how they got the camera) This little camera had its flash attached to it and when I opened to see the back I found that there was film in it too! Maybe over 20 years old. I thought probably half of it was burnt but I still wanted to shoot over it to see the result. It might come out interesting I thought to myself. The second camera was Smena 8m. I haven't used it yet but I have heard that it is a totally manual camera. I have watched videos about it so that while I'm shooting I don't mess up any film. It is sitting in my room for now. But Firday I got that obviously expired and burnt film developed. I got 25 out of 36 photos. Which was pretty good considering the condition. Out of the 25 4 of them I can't make out anything. So that leaves me off with 21 photos. Still over 20. Which makes me happy.

You can find some of these photos on my  FLICKR  page.

Paris: Part 3

Saturday, June 9, 2012

Finally I had the time to gather all the photos and continue with the rest of the trip. I can't believe how many photos I took. I don't want to put 147182 photos on here so I chose the most important ones. Today I'm going to continue with our second day of Paris and you can find my last post HERE if you have missed something. So the second day we decided to head to Musee du Louvre! One of the most exciting part of our trip. 
 Started our trip at the Subway of course! Look how happy I am.
 Outside view from Louvre.
 My sister trying to figure out the map and the most important things to see as we have so little time!
 Heading to our first destination!
 Our first destination was of course Mona Lisa! I wouldn't want to say we went to The Louvre and had no time to see Leonardo Da Vinci's most famous work of art!
 Some examples of the ceilings. I can't believe how much detail we're on them. It was mesmerising.
 An artist painting the same exact painting on the wall. Which was interesting to watch.
 One statue out of 2847921841 that were there. Just to give an idea of how neatly it was organised. They had everything there from almost every known artist. 
 My photograph with dum dum haha. Reminds me of Night at the Museum.
 Some other island statues. Too cute and meaningful.
 The last one is The Dying Slave from Michelangelo. One of his finest works.
 Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
 The Turkish Bath. 
 A painting of the Louvre inside the Louvre. Weird huh.
 On our way to the Sphynx, which we managed to get not one decent photo of, we saw this. I don't know exact name but it has to do with Egypt, obviously.
Leaving one of the best places on earth. The Louvre was extra-ordinary. I wish to go there again and have more time to check out everything. Thanks for reading and hopefully like my trip to the museum. I have so many other photos but I think I summed it up enough with these! Have a great weekend!

Collection: Pokémon

Saturday, June 2, 2012

I mentioned that I will be posting about my collections today and I want to start off with Pokémon. Why you say? Because when I was a little girl I loved what all boys loved. Soccer, cars, watching cartoons that were mostly related to boys like Power Rangers, Digimon and of course most importantly Pokémon! You might think that how extreme can a person get with a cartoon. Well here are the photographs that may or may not have your answer.These are all my card decks. They all differ. The first photo is my biggest collection of cards and it gets less as the photos go on because I guess they were lost or thrown out before and the ones in the first photo were the newest that came out.These are all my Tazos. If you have no absolute idea on what they are I invite you to Wikipedia! 
Hope you don't think I'm too weird these things actually made my childhood fun. I enjoyed winning and taking away other peoples cards and tazos haha. Have a great weekend!
