Lately I find myself doing a lot more music wise then I do photo wise (not to say that I am going to become a jerk with a camera /guitar/banjo/microphone or anything anytime soon) In addition to playing in our increasingly inaccurately described folk rock duo My Friend Lisa (there are four of us now) I have found my self playing with Mikala on a fairly regular basis. I have also been working on a raunchy punk rock side project with my other awesome friend Jenna (whom you may remember from this video) called “The Stank” All that & I have been recording a few demos for other people! All in all it has been rather busy on the music front these past months.
All the while I have been tring to live up to the camera part of my jerk with a camera name though, as such this is a polaroid from Wednesday of my friend Mikala manhandling Chester!
We were working on some new material but its not quite ready for the masses yet so I will leave you with a cover of the worlds best band EVAH!!!

I was cleaning up a little on friday when I cam across one of my polaroid tins. You see we ship prints, cd’s and such in these snazzy tin containers,
but when one of them is dented or otherwise not fit to send to a client it gets delegated to ride around in my camera bag protecting polaroids on photowanders. So I found one of these the other day & to my surprise there was a whack of polaroids in it that I have never scanned in to share.
So here I am now sharing them with you! :)
Where I got turned around on the Coquihalla because of crappy tires and lots of snow.
I think were the last of some Polaroid Type 80 Pack film that I had. Shot on the Mamiya RB67 With I am guessing a 90mm lens for the first one and a 50mm lens for the second. I am quite amazed at how much these faded since I took them in November. I had to bring a lot of contrast back when I scanned them in because they were nearly faded right out to grey in spots.
I am making a purchase from the imposable project. I can not wait. I was going to wait till they came out with some type 600 as well but I am super excited to try the PX100 and I simply can not wait to try the Fade To Black film as well as some of the other SX-70 film.
I am thinking i might get a few of the type 100’s as well..
Who wants to split shipping? Shipping can be quite expensive so if some one wants to gang up an order with me I am all for it. Email me or comment here.
It looks like the shipping is going to be a flat $50us regardless if you are buying 1 pack or 20. So what I am going to suggest is we will see who all is interested and then split the shipping equally amongst everyone. Sound good? Good!
Yup just saying
These are part of an art installation down near the Olympic torch. Fun!
Ya you should all head on down to false creek near the Expo ball to see the inukshuks that people are building in mass on the beach. My Fuji Instax Polaroid camera says so.
So I picked up a new camera today. I finally found a new Fuji Instax 210 for non-lomography Prices!:)
I tried this camera out today while we walked about the North Vancouver pier today. Pretty awesome on sunny days :)
Update: I was at Beau Photo yesterday and i happen to notice that they have all the film and these cameras for sale! Didn’t see prices but they have in stock!
As promised I have played a little bit with the 4×5 Omega! Here is the first and only color Polaroid to come out of it :)
Impromptu My Friend Lisa band photo!
After we move and things are settled down I am excited to use the Omega a little bit more. I have a new polaroid back for some Fuji FP100C action and I have a shinny new box of Polaroid 72 that is calling my name.
Saturday is moving day so anyone that wants to haul heavy boxes can meet us at our new place at 12:30. I am sure you all you who are coming to our variety of parties in the upcoming week know where we are moving to. there will be beer and pizza.
