Sometimes it can take a week or even longer until I get a film in my camera full. On Saturday it almost only took me 2 hours....I saw so much while I was in Surry Hills..

#1 The house with the growing plants
#2 Tokyo bikes
#3 Bistrode
#4 ...
#5/6/7 The infamous Bourke Street Bakery
#8 Just loved this green corner ...
#9 .. and this yellow mail box

I love shooting film and enjoy it so much. On my trip to Tasmania in November last year I found another Pentax at the Salamanca Markets. This time a lot lighter and newer than the old one I used to use - for only $20 I was so happy to call it mine. The photos above are from the first roll I shot with it.

Those tarts look so delicious. I really have to visit Sydney again soon. I used to go up a few times a year and now I haven't been in a couple of years.

I love Salamanca Markets. It's always one of the highlights of a Hobart visit for me. You just never know the treasures you might find there.

I enjoy using film, too. It's always such a lovely surprise when you get the roll developed. But I am so hesitant to take photos compared with when I am using a my digital SLR. Do you find that too?

oh, maria...

i need to take a leaf out of your book: i recently developed a roll of film that had pictures in it of me wearing my winter jacket and scarf...hmm. MUCH longer than a week, i think!!

i need to take more photos; yours are just WONDERFUL, you really have a great eye, and the film makes them even more beautiful (congrats on the new camera find, too!)

Oh my God, these photos are so fantastic! Esp. the "Boulangerie" one. I don't know how you do that, but I find these pictures so, so heart-warming... Thank you! ♥
