Last week I returned to the UK for the 1st time in 6 months to see my friends and family. Living in land-locked Austria has made me miss the seaside; so when visiting my Grandad in Eastbourne, I couldn’t resist a trip to the beach with La Sardina!
When we left for Eastbourne it was dull and raining in my hometown of Tunbridge Wells. My Mum told me that the weather would be better once we reached the coast but I didn’t believe her….she was right! We got off the train and the sun was actually shining! We took full advantage of the weather by heading straight to a fish and chip shop and then had a walk along the pier. I had a redscale film in La Sardina and was really pleased with how the shots came out!
And I’m especially happy with the photos of Grandad and I – I was always one of those difficult kids who hated being photographed with my family but I guess I’ve matured a little bit!
But even though the sun was shining, my girlfriend Ina looked a little cold – I don’t know why, it wasn’t as cold as Vienna in the winter!
We had an epic Film Photography Day celebration this year at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC. Our friends at Sacred Tattoo NYC were kind enough to transform the gallery into a tattoo shop so Lomographers could show their analog pride forever and ever with a free camera tattoo!
