Last weekend was my blogs 4th birthday. I really can not believe it has been 4 years that I have been blogging. It has been an amazing 4 years and when I first started I couldn't imagine the things it would lead me too, the opportunities or the amazing friends I would make.

So here's to hopefully many more years blogging! Thank you to every single one of you that takes the time to read and comment and share. I want to give you all a big hug.

All the photos above were taken on my blogs birthday. We went for a drive up into the mountains exploring the country antique stores and opshops. I hope to be sharing more of my photos here as my camera collection expands!

  4. @muchlove ~ thanks lovely. Expired film is so fun with the colour surprises. My brother found me this camera at a garage sale. I love it! An old minolta was actually what I first learnt to take photos on, so it makes this camera extra special.

    @kelly ~ in terms of film cameras I now have Diana F+, Diana Mini, Superheadz Ultra Wide and an old Minolta slr. Now I can add a LCA to the list. yay! Can't wait for it to arrive.

    Also great photos, such a perfect way to celebrate four years of blogging.

    My friend has a LCA, it is pretty impressive camera. I am tempted but I think I already have too many film cameras as it is.
