I'm in love with you completely
I'm afraid that's all I can do.*

My first photos with my Diana lens! I've been hesitant to get the film camera because I can't be bothered with 120 film, but I'm happy with the way these turned out. It was hard to keep myself from taking a photo with this lens and one with my "normal" lens, but I like that I only have photos in this format. It makes them more special.

PS - See those little boys in the last two photos? Well, I was smitten with their silhouettes so I snapped away like a madwoman and suddenly heard, "ARE YOU TAKING PICTURES OF US?!" Probably one of my more embarrassing moments but they were really cute about it and didn't mind one bit.

  4. I've had this lens for over a year and have yet to use it. After looking over your photos I realize how stupid I have been. These are stunning and you have inspired me to hit the town and use my lens this weekend!

  5. these pictures are great (as usual)! love how they capture a dreamy feeling (ditto to the above comments) and oddly enough, warmth (that is until you see the sweatshirt).

  15. Lovely, lovely pictures. I really need to get myself a "real" camera. Of course, maybe I should focus on feeding myself and paying rent first...

  18. WOW, you have had some great pictures for your 120 film. I was also hesitant to get the Diana, but I have now got a 35mm back which is a great investment, saves time and money I wouldn't be without it :)
