Hello. I have been back home from my holiday for a few days now and thought I’d share a little update of what went on, where I went and just generally what is happening at the moment. Firstly the big news is that i got engaged, the main reason for the holiday was to visit a few places my girlfriend had always wanted to see for her birthday and I thought Id combine that with doing something a bit stupid and asking her to marry me. She said yes as I’m clearly an amazing catch.
We spent a few days in Slovenia, visiting the capital Ljubljana and also taking a trip to the beautiful Lake Bled. Then we made the ridiculous decision to travel to Venice purely to catch a plane to the Greek island of Mykonos, spent a few days there, then onward by ferry to the island of Santorini (which are both stunning places by the way). And then finally another ferry to Athens for a few days vising the famous sites before heading home.
In all the whole experience was amazing, I got to see ancient Greek ruins, visit stunning islands and mountains, photograph some amazing sunsets and experience it with my best friend. As I haven’t had a chance to get the images I shot back from the lab, I have posted off some 35mm today but haven’t done so yet with the 120, I ahven’t any proper images to show you. Just some snapshots from my phone.
In other news since i’ve been home I’ve had another two images of mine exhibited by the Glasgow Gallery of Photography in their current landscape exhibition. One is the image of mountains you will see on the front page of this website, an image I shot last year in the Brecon Beacons. And another shot recently at sunset on Caerphilly Mountain less than a 10 minute drive from my house.
Also the cool guys at Film Bros have agreed to sell a few copies of some of my zines at a zine fair being run by Bright Rooms at the Peckham Levels on the 5th October. They suggested I get involved but as it’s down in London and I have a family event the same day here in Cardiff they have been super cool and agreed to sell some of my work on my behalf. Thanks Guys.
Also just a random incident I thought I’d mention; three times this past week I’ve had strangers comment on how cool my cameras looked. See everyone, film is definitely not dead!
Anyway I’ll leave you with an image of just how much I shot over the last few weeks. This is actually just some of it as there’s still half a roll of 120 left in the Yashica.
Until next time, Keep Shooting Film Everyone.
