Back in Adelaide, I finished the roll that was in my camera. The map shop across from Format has an atlas in the window and the page changes every day. We went on a 'retreat' to a forest in the hills. Tannon recently moved house and now not only does he live with some super-nice housemates, but if you squint through his window you can see their overgrown red shed with white trimmings - and it's ALMOST like a Swedish summer house.

We were in Sydney to see Jónsi, which was of course absolutely magical. I gave film a try - I shot some in similar conditions last year at Deerhunter that worked OK - but alas, there was little to salvage from the 35mm photos especially after the processing place cut them all incorrectly! We both fell a little bit in love with both Jónsi and his amazingly handsome bass player, Úlfur.

Sydney, from a few weekends ago. I used my AE-1 for the first time. Needless to say I need to a) use better quality film and b) work on my exposure. Some are quite lovely though.

Mia Nolting keeps me amused for hours. What with her questionnaires, free stuff and art school money making scheme - which totally sounds like something we'd do at Format.

Now she's selling envelopes of 'stuff' and I am totally buying one. She also makes really nice pictures. With nice hand drawn type. Did I mention how witty and whimsical she is? Yeah. I kinda want to be her. (Just like I want to be Hattie Newman. Perhaps I should write an entire blog post about people I 'want to be'.)

I can't wait to see what I get in my envelope.
