Just imagine one perfect day on the island. Many amazing places and people to photograph. Everybody agrees to be photographed, and wherever you locate your camera places in view-finder look simply astonish! So you want to be old school (in a good meaning of that) and you shot with film camera, slide film. When you finish all roll you want to ask for cross processing to have one in kind effect. Just imagine it all. After shooting 36 exposures you are happy to go to photo lab in Victoria and you can’t wait for one hour to pass to get all your photographs ready to share them with the rest of the world! But NO! Nobody in Seychelles didn’t even hear about cross processing! They don’t want to take your film, because it is a slide. So they simply don’t take it. They don’t care as well that you want to develop this film in C-41 process! That means I have to send my film to Europe to develop… Grrrr! The beach, Seychelles.
If subject for weekly photo challenge is family, I should definitely mentioned these TWO ! My boyfriend and dog or my dog and boyfriend 😉 Some of you had a chance to see Nalu on my blog. I guess he get used to camera since he was a puppy. In photography studio he always put himself on background, before anybody else. Plus it was very difficult to get him out of there. Well what can I say… small star! My Two Stars 😉
I am still in love about my Polaroid! But to be honest, photographs after some time are getting more and more destroyed. Of course I get Dry Kit from Impossible Project but I have the feeling it is not good enough. On the pictures appear spots, so far mostly on black and white films. Does anybody of you has the same problem? In the photograph are my parents and me, in the background is our new home. Beautiful, sunny day a little bit cold, so hot tea was essential!
Family for me are people and a house. This is My family. Me and my parents in a new home. I am sitting in a swimming pool. Can’t wait till everything will be finished and I will jump into the pool! Easy to say because now we have a quite big distance 7124 kilometers which is about 11 hours by plane. Well one thing is positive about that, I could live in Australia too 😉
From far away I saw lonely wooden chair situated underneath big palm tree in a shadow. Place looked so relaxing that I decided came closer with my Polaroid. However I was planning to get different colours on my final photograph. Behind the brown chairs was a turquoise water which could be great contrast for these two colours. But you know how they say about Polaroid “you never know what you are going to get”. Picture was taken on Eden Island in Seychelles. Eden Island is a residential luxury marina.
The “traveller’s palm” has been given this name because the sheaths of the stems hold rainwater, which can be used as an emergency drinking supply,specially for the travellers. Mahe Island, Seychelles. Photograph was scanned by myself using light box and SLR camera. But not all pictures has good colours like this one.
