Bearwood Bus Station (Birmingham)

4

From here, the West Midlands is your oyster!

Bearwood is the area of Birmingham in which I live, and the best way out of Bearwood (if you don’t have access to private transport) – catch a bus from Bearwood Bus Station. It’s at the end of my road, and from there the world (well, the West Midlands) is your oyster.

Obviously you can get a bus to Birmingham, but these babies head off in all directions. Among the exotic destinations are: Oldbury, West Bromwich, Halesowen and Dudley. But probably the most exciting destination (whisper it, for it may only be a legend) is… Drayton Manor Park and Zoo!!!

This location is best photographed with a vintage camera to emphasize its homely old fashioned nature, although you should remember that all the time you’re photographing it, it’s photographing you too with its newly installed CCTV

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
