picture sharing is always fun..

a couple years ago a friend linked me over to rhianne's website, for the easily distracted. not only does she LOVE plastic cameras like me but she also does a photoswap once a year.

i joined the photoswap two years ago and was super excitamated. come to find out, my partner never sent me her film so i was left with nothing. kinda sucked cause i think the film i sent her was going to be a good roll. booo at flakers!

last year i joined and had shitty film so my pictures came out crappy. but my partners pictures were awesomesauce! at first i thought it was my picture taking skills lol it freaked me out a bit..but then i developed another roll that i bought along with the one i sent my partner and realized that it wasn't my camera or my skills..but the shitty film.

this year i plan on finally getting it right lol i'll be using granny and a good roll of film so that i disappoint my partner again. :/ i bought granny last year on ebay for $20. she's a canon eos rebel g and she's spiffy like all the other spiffy cameras i have. which btw i'm thinking of selling some of my plastic cameras due to them collecting dust..but that's for another post..

Each photoswapper either takes a roll of film or buys a disposable camera it has to be something that you develop and they take photos just for their swap partner, then send the cameras/films to each other and develop the other persons photos. (and posts them on their blogs for everyone to see of course)
Entry into the swap closes on Monday 20th August 2012 and the dates for sending your films to your partners will be announced once all the pairs have been put together (this can take a while depending on how many people join but don’t worry further dates will be announced, when I know, you’ll know).
so if you're interested...click the link and sign up for this years photoswap. you don't have to be an expert or own an expensive ass camera. it's all about having fun and the surprise of developing someone else's film. :]


last year i joined susannah conway's august break 2012 and i've joined again this year and i'm number 444 on the list. crazy cause 4 is my favorite number. :]

August Break 2012

 from susannah conway's website:
How it works: you simply share one photo (or more!) each day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.

There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) + a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at and new blogs to discover.
if you're interested, click the link and join. :]

if you join either of these..please don't forget to add a link on your sidebar to each AND to let me know so i can follow your pictures as well. :]

are you part of any picture sharing groups?! i'd love to check 'em out!

..till next time ;]
