First Lomography film developed

My first film developed from my Lomography toy camera, the La Sardina. I was so excited to see how this film would turn out. I took about three 36frame films full with my new La Sardina end of last year, only to find out the camera was broken and all the films were blank. I was so disappointed, because I took photos at far away places I visited only once. Guess I'll just have to go back and re-shoot them ;) 

These photos were taken on my holiday in Cape Town, South Africa. I used the Lomography Colour Chrome ISO100 film which was perfect for the bright days on the beach or at the harbour.

You'll see there are lines on some of the photos. This is due to that I had to pull the film out and roll it back manually under a blanket at night because the camera didn't want to roll back the film itself. Looks like this camera a giving me a bit of trouble, but bring it on! 

The photo was taken using the multiple exposer function.

Journey to work

I take the Gautrain from Pretoria to Johannesburg everyday to work. I sneaked my La Sardina in to document a few photos of my journey to work everyday.

The photos are shoot in Lomography Colour Chrome ISO100 film. I think the ISO100 was a bit to o low for the station. I think a ISO200 film would have worked better. But the bright morning sun shining in on the platform makes it a bit difficult.

Autumn in Secunda

It has been quite a while since posting my film photos. I had about 5 rolls of film, a documentation of all the adventures I had these past few months, waiting impatiently to be developed. Watch this space, a lot of photos are still to come.

This set of photos were taken during autumn in Secunda, Mpumalanga, South Africa. The town mostly exist out of the mining plant of Sasol. The horizon is mostly filled with the constructions of the plant with smoke and fire bubbling into the sky. Despite this, it is a beautiful town if you only open your eyes and look a little closer. I have to admit, the plant is beautiful at night with thousands of little lights.

These photos are taken with my RICOH KR10 using FujiFilm Colour 200ISO film with a warming filter.

This photo is the first of the film strip, that is what cause the light burn on the left.
