pentax me super

En train de flâner. Aucun train-train.

Here's some more photos from Paris (again taken with a Pentax ME super and expired Poundland film with a strange red cast), from my general wandering around. Wandering is one of my favourite things to do.

I'm in the middle of writing a new zine about the trip. Hopefully I'll have it finished by the Sheffield Zine Fest next weekend.... Read More...

One roll, however, turned out to be half-used already and I ended up with double exposures. It turned out I'd already taken photos of a place called Domfront in Normandy with it. Domfront is a bit of a ghost town, which made me laugh to get double exposures of a literal graveyard over a figurative one.... Read More...
