holga in hakone

My super amazing trip to Tokyo in April was made even more amazing when we visited the Hakone Open Air Museum - or as I like to call it 'the most magical place on earth!'

Just an hour out of Tokyo on the very fast 'Romance Car' this open air gallery is nestled in the most incredible Hakone landscape. It is filled with sculpture and has one of the largest Henry Moore collections in the world as well as an entire pavilion dedicated to Picasso - suffice to say we were a little bit excited!

The plan was to stay at the museum for a couple of hours then head off to explore the rest of Hakone in the hope of seeing Mt Fuji... 5 hours later we were still there! If you ever get to Tokyo this must go on your itinerary - I can't wait to go back!

I had my Holga as well as my DSLR - I wish I shot more with the Holga as it was a perfect day for it...

the last of the impossible

I have been working my way through the last couple of packs of Impossible Project PX Cool & PX Silver Shade Cool. Its a little bit expired in my 'I don't want to waste film' paranoia so I thought I should just suck it up and use the film! Its still really hit and miss - (more miss I think!) and I'm in constant awe and wonder as to how people are actually getting successful results with this very unstable film! The Impossible Project stopped production in August to reassess film production and have now just released a new family of film that I'm very much looking forward to getting my hands on. Successful images or not - I really do love that camera - check out this most awesome little film over here!
