Fujica ST605N, what does that even mean? What am I doing? Is this real life?

Friday, August 26, 2011 § 0

Last week I visited my favourite thrift shop and found a Fujica ST605N. I didn't impulsively buy it because I was reminded by Celia that I knew nothing about the camera, so I went home and did some research (Read: flickr creeping). Filled with camera hoarding lust and being slightly more informed, I went back the next day and bought it. These are some of the results of my attempt at working with a manual film camera sans the battery-operated light meter. I still have no idea what I'm doing.

blackdenim summer

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 § 0

I made it a personal goal to wear black denim all summer. Today I wore black denim and an ugly sweater and nearly threw up at how disgustingly hot it was. For the first time in approximately a year, I changed into shorts. Are you ready for these pasty whites? 

Little Joy - Evaporar
Fruit Bats - Tangie and Ray
Gauntlet Hair - Top Bunk
The Morning Benders - Excuses
Alex Turner - Stuck On The Puzzle
Edith Piaf - J'M'En Fous Pas Mal
Beach House - Used To Be
Girls - Hellhole Ratrace
Alex Turner - It's Hard To Get Around The Wind

There aren't a lot of songs, mostly because I spent the majority of the month listening to the Submarine soundtrack and Edith Piaf, pretending I was Oliver Tate and extracting dreams, (respectively,) and whatnot.
If you haven't seen Submarine yet, the DVD is out now. Buy it.
