Night Out With Diana Mini

My tiny little Diana Mini camera went out in Birmingham recently - we visited Digbeth Dining Club at Spotlight, and then celebrated Annika's birthday in town. The best thing about film cameras is that you don't find out what pictures look like until you get the film developed and I think it always turns out better than expected!
I decided to get the film cross processed this time, and I fell in love with the high contrast, saturation and grain in these photographs.

Weekend in Paris

My sister and I spent a long weekend in Paris - she ran a half marathon for the first time and I tagged along to support her. I got there on Saturday evening and was really tired, so we just rested and got ready for an early start on Sunday morning. 

Lina finished in 1 hour 50 minutes, which is fantastic for a first half marathon!
The hardest part was over and we were off to do the tourist ting!

The sun was going down as we were in the Eiffel Tower, and Paris looked very beautiful indeed.
We refueled ourselves with pizza, pasta and red wine, and headed back to hotel to get ready for the marathon after party. I can just say it was a long night.
Monday was spent eating massive burgers and pastrami sandwiches, sightseeing, and more sightseeing...


My legs are still sore from walking around, it feels like I ran the marathon too!
