This batch of photos was taken with my last roll of Ektachrome 64, expired since 1984. I'd been saving this last roll so long that I was pleasantly surprised to find I still had it (I just love finding film that I didn't remember having!). This film had always given me really subtle tones and understated colors, something I loved about it, so when I saw these results I was totally blown away. I just love the almost unreal boldness of these colors, and felt it an appropriate last hurrah for this film to go out on.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
