Kodak Instamatic

I've been very busy finishing off my project at university... I'm in the last stages and I find this the hardest part. It's so tough keeping motivated and interested in what I'm doing for the last couple of months. As a little treat, I've taken a few trips around the Charity Shops.

Today I picked up a couple of Kodak Instamatic cameras but upon returning home with them, I was disappointed to find out that it's almost impossible to find 126 film. I did, however, find great instructions for transfering 35mm film into a 126 film cartridge, and one of the cameras I found has an old film inside so I may try it out at some point...

In the meantime I took some shots through the viewfinder of the Instamatic 50. The bag above is my new favourite bag. It's made of sturdy canvas and goes with just about everything. The photo wasn't staged: I was just about to press the button and Honey hopped on the bed to smell it. She's obsessed with it.

I found this blouse on Monday and have been altering it so it fits me perfectly. If it works out OK, I'll take some photos of it finished. I adore the scalloped hem.

Honey just loves the camera. She's such a poser! And when she thinks I'm not looking, she's playing with the camera wrist straps.

It's going to be hot this weekend. I can't wait to be in the sun!

I love these. I have a couple of instamtics but it is impossible to find film for them. They are cute though :)
