A while ago I blogged here, to show you my new camera from Lomography. I shot my first film ... sent it off to be processed ... and waited ... and waited .... and then I got my photos back!! In this digital age we're just not used to waiting for anything are we, but let me tell you I was excited to get my new pics. I had them cross-processed which means you're never sure quite what you're going to get but that's all part of the fun :-) I put a few of them here in this slide show, but because Facebook just yanked my DVD and accused me of copyright violation (Grrrrrr!) this DVD is sadly silent.
So why go back to film photography? What's the difference? Here's the difference.

And this is one of my favourites (taken with a wide-angle lens) ... my two kids showing that they know how to behave perfectly well at a restaurant:
So that's what you do with those little tubes of sugar!
Mr C looked at this photo and said 'that looks like it was taken 40 years ago'.
That's the point.
Now, onto workshops .... I have updated my teaching schedule page here where you can see most of my up-and-coming workshops ... but there will be a few additions so keep checking back. I will be teaching several workshops at my favourite place, Art from the Heart (Harrogate N Yorks) including art journaling, Golden painting techniques, journaling with Stampotique etc, and another whole weekend of journaling woohoo!, and you can see details of all of those here.
And something completely new for me which I am very excited about ... I will be heading 'darn sarf' to teach at the Stamp Attic in Wantage, Oxford!! Woohoo!! You can see all the details here and here. Places are limited so if you want to come and get inky with me be quick!
And if you live in Holland .... watch this space! Ooooooh. Details to follow!
