“Vem conversar, eu pago as imperiais e o café”

Not much work done…

… but DANG was it worth the procrastination!

I have, by some whimsical twist of fate, just found out about Pomplamoose and have simply been jumping around my room to their stuff!

Ilford XP2 Super and Diamonds

Despite being marked as an ISO 400 film, it didn’t seem THAT sensitive to light.

This film lasted me through December so I’ve got shots from The Big Wave in London, a little Christmas banter in my student accommodation and my trip to Portugal over Christmas (nothing shown from there). Here are a few shots. They are scans from prints and it will take me a while before I get access to the film scanner at school. Will update to better shots ASAP.

One of my favourite shots, despite the word being slightly covered. Quite tongue in cheek christianity here.
