Mystery film- pleasant but bland

I've got a whole load of unscanned negatives here which I'm slowly working my way through.

There's a Ghost in My House- the Fall, about half of Spiderland, and Trail of Dead.... Read More...

Friends in Vienna

She saw some pictures I'd posted on my tumblr ( emmajanefalconer.tumblr.com) tagged with Wien and sent me a message to see if I'd like to hang out, because it seemed we liked loads of the same things. She's from Germany originally, and is studying Journalism in Vienna and likes drawing and photography too.... Read More...
