Monica Sanchez

i love this series of photographs by Monica Sanchez taken with a Nikon FM2 – a film camera that i also use. it makes me want to go out and buy a roll of film (and is also helping the summer psyching). check out her flickr. all photographs by Monica Sanchez

Dog Portraits

i’m a huge fan of Mark Peckmezian’s photography, especially his series of portraits that i end up favouriting every time he uploads a new one. he has a set on flickr dedicated entirely to shots of dogs that will make you smile all day long. all photography by Mark Peckmezian

The Comparisons Project: Cracks

Hila picked Cracks for our next comparisons project – a film I have been meaning to watch for ages but just never got round to. i actually find myself watching less and less films these days, as any available tv time is dedicated to my series addiction (cough game of thrones cough).…

The Comparisons Project: Bright Star

Coffee & cats

Kodachrome…

You give us those nice bright colors, you give us the greens of summers / Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah! / I got a Nikon camera , I love to take a photograph / So Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away makes me smile…

adam simpson & the baftas
