Bugs and Flowers

As per Nina's request, I took some more photos of my new little picture maker. Since my last post, I've looked a little more into getting film for it but as far as I can gather it only takes this kind. No longer in production, and quite expensive to get developed, getting film might be more trouble than it's worth. Oh well, I predicted as much when I handed over 50pence for it at the charity shop. I think the camera is quite content sitting on my drawers and playing in amongst the ladybugs and flowers for now.


On a similar note (camera, photography, models, hair modelling, hair cutting. You see my train of thought?), I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow afternoon at Mahogany in London. I'm thinking a colour change might be in order. Any suggestions? I'm thinking green. If only so I can camouflage in the lush grass. I may or may not be wearing monochrome green right now for that exact reason.

Oh but I'll look like an elf and I thought you liked elves? Or perhaps I'll go for blue. Then I can be a smurf. Why, hello there, Miss Smurf. Yes?

If you can call four cameras a collection, Nina, then yes, I do collect cameras. Thanks Dannie, Terra and Teabagstains, I decided to go with your advice. You'll be pleased to know I'm still red, an even (i.e. no more roots!), shiny, much lovelier red now.

ebay is a good place to look for film that's hard to find. Good luck!

I have another model of instamatic camera and I've heard through the rumor mill that if you take apart the cartridge that it takes you can shove 35mm film into it. I still have to find a 126 cartridge to use though. I've seen them before inside of cameras in thrift world but since I've acquired my camera I haven't seen any.
